Description Prasad J Pandit 2018-11-26 05:41:29 UTC
A use-after-free flaw was found in the VirtFS, host directory sharing via Plan 9
File System(9pfs) support in QEMU. It could occur due to a race condition while renaming
files on a shared host directory.

A user inside guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process resulting in DoS issue.
