Description Martin Alexander Neumann 2009-10-13 12:56:36 UTC
QEMU is prone to an insecure-password vulnerability.

Attackers may exploit this issue to make brute-force attacks against passwords that are weaker than expected.

QEMU 9.1 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected. 

Reproducible: Didn't try
