Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-04-24 11:52:24 UTC
From ${URL} :

Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the VirtFS, host directory sharing via Plan 9
File System(9pfs) support, is vulnerable to an improper access control issue.
It could occur while accessing files on a shared host directory.

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to access host file system
beyond the shared folder and potentially escalating their privileges on a host.

Upstream patches:


@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
