Hello,

A use-after-free flaw was found in the VirtFS, host directory sharing via Plan
9 File System(9pfs) support in QEMU. It could occur due to a race condition in
updating fid path in worker threads via v9fs_path_copy(), while accessing
files on a shared host directory.

A user inside guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process resulting in
DoS issue.

Upstream patch:

-> https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2018-11/msg02795.html

This issue was reported by Zhibin hu.

Thank you.
