Description Alexander Bergmann 2016-08-31 08:21:42 UTC
rh#1346349 

Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the VirtFS, host directory sharing via Plan 9 File System(9pfs) support, is vulnerable to a directory/path traversal issue. It could occur while creating or accessing files on a shared host directory.

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to access undue files on the host.
