Description

The QXL display driver in QXL Virtual GPU 0.1.0 allows local users to cause a denial of service (guest crash or hang) via a SPICE connection that prevents other threads from obtaining the qemu_mutex mutex. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
