qemu -- denial of service vulnerability in VMWARE VMXNET3 NIC support
Prasad J Pandit, Red Hat Product Security Team, reports:
Qemu emulator built with a VMWARE VMXNET3 paravirtual NIC emulator
support is vulnerable to a memory leakage flaw. It occurs when a
guest repeatedly tries to activate the vmxnet3 device.
A privileged guest user could use this flaw to leak host memory,
resulting in DoS on the host.
