tcp_emu in tcp_subr.c in libslirp 4.1.0, as used in QEMU 4.2.0, mismanages
memory, as demonstrated by IRC DCC commands in EMU_IRC. This can cause a
heap-based buffer overflow or other out-of-bounds access which can lead to a
DoS or potential execute arbitrary code.
This is probably already fixed, but wanted to file to make sure that we put a fix in place.
Maintainers please confirm.
