Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-06-08 07:53:41 UTC
From ${URL} :

Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the USB EHCI Emulation support is vulnerable 
to a memory leakage issue. It could occur while hot-unplugging the device, as 
it does not release the memory allocated at initialisation.

A guest user/process could use this issue to leak host memory, resulting in 
DoS for 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.
