Description Prasad J Pandit 2018-12-18 08:46:08 UTC
An out-of-bound stack buffer r/w access issue was found in QEMU's generic
RDMA back-end implementation. It could occur when a driver tries to build
scatter/gather element's array in build_host_sge_array() routine.

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