Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-12-22 08:24:34 UTC
From ${URL} :

Qemu emulator built with the SCSI MegaRAID SAS HBA emulation support is vulnerable to a stack 
buffer overflow issue. It occurs while processing the SCSI controller's CTRL_GET_INFO command. A 
privileged guest user could use this flaw to crash the Qemu process 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.
