Description

QEMU (aka Quick Emulator) built with the ColdFire Fast Ethernet Controller emulator support is vulnerable to an infinite loop issue. It could occur while receiving packets in 'mcf_fec_receive'. A privileged user/process inside guest could use this issue to crash the QEMU process on the host leading to DoS.
