CVE-2017-15124 (retired)

Priority
Description
VNC server implementation in Quick Emulator (QEMU) 2.11.0 and older was
found to be vulnerable to an unbounded memory allocation issue, as it did
not throttle the framebuffer updates sent to its client. If the client did
not consume these updates, VNC server allocates growing memory to hold onto
this data. A malicious remote VNC client could use this flaw to cause DoS
to the server host.
Notes
