Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-02-14 11:56:26 UTC
From ${URL} :

Quick emulator(Qemu) built with the USB xHCI controller emulator support is
vulnerable to an infinite loop issue. It could occur while processing control
transfer descriptors' sequence in xhci_kick_epctx.

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