Due deficiency in the implementation of the TSO (TCP segment offloading), the guest's virtio-net driver transmitted improper data to the particular QEMU-KVM process on the host, resulting in its termination. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause denial of service (guest crash) by sending certain, specially-crafted data to arbitrary open port on the target guest system. A remote attacker could exploit this to crash guests which use virtio networking on Linux kernels earlier than 2.6.26. Note that this was previously reported in Canonical's launchpad but no CVE name was ever assigned AFAIK.
