New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Quick Emulator (Qemu) built with the USB EHCI Emulation support is vulnerable to a memory leakage issue. It could occur while processing packet data in 'ehci_init_transfer'. A guest user/process could use this issue to leak host memory, resulting in DoS for a host.
