It occurs during communication between host controller interface(EHCI) and a respective device driver. These two communicate via a split isochronous transfer descriptor list(siTD) and an infinite loop unfolds if there is a closed loop in this list. A privileges used inside guest could use this flaw to consume excessive CPU cycles & resources on the host. This issue is similar to CVE-2015-8558, but using siTD instead of iTD. Upstream patch: --------------- -> https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2016-04/msg02691.html Reference: ---------- -> https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1325129 This issue are discovered by Du Shaobo of Qihoo 360 Inc. Thank you. -- Prasad J Pandit / Red Hat Product Security Team 47AF CE69 3A90 54AA 9045 1053 DD13 3D32 FE5B 041F
