Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-04-28 13:20:59 UTC
From ${URL} :

Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the MegaRAID SAS 8708EM2 Host Bus Adapter
emulation support is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds read access issue. It
could occur while performing a MMIO write operation.

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to read host memory
leading to potentially crash the Qemu process on the host.

Upstream patch:

@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.
