Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2016-03-02 15:47:12 UTC
From ${URL} :

Qemu emulator built with the NE2000 NIC emulation support is vulnerable to an infinite loop issue. 
It could occur when receiving packets over the network.

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

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.
