Description Robert Frohl 2020-12-01 13:51:28 UTC
rh#1903064

An infinite loop issue was found in the e1000e device emulator in QEMU. The issue could occur while receiving packets via e1000e_write_packet_to_guest() routine, if the receive(RX) descriptor has NULL buffer address. A privileged guest user may use this flaw to induce a DoS scenario in the host.
