Subject: CVE request Qemu: usb: null pointer dereference in remote NDIS
 control message handling

   Hello,

Qemu emulator built with the USB Net device emulation support is vulnerable to 
a NULL pointer dereference issue. It could occur while processing remote NDIS 
control message packets, when the USB configuration descriptor object is null.

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to crash the Qemu process 
instance resulting in DoS.
