Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-08-30 07:53:22 UTC
From ${URL} :

Quick emulator(Qemu) built with the VGA display emulator support is vulnerable
to an out-of-bounds read access issue. It could occur while reading VGA memory
to update graphics display.

A privileges user/process inside guest could use this flaw to crash the Qemu
process on the host resulting in DoS situation.

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.
