Missing Release of Resource after Effective Lifetime
A flaw was found in the virtio-net device of QEMU. This flaw was inadvertently introduced with the fix for CVE-2021-3748, which forgot to unmap the cached virtqueue elements on error, leading to memory leakage and other unexpected results. Affected QEMU versions v6.2.0-rc0 prior to v7.0.0-rc0.
CWE-772 - Missing Release Of Resource After Effective Lifetime
'Missing release of resource after effective lifetime' is a weakness that occurs when software doesn't sufficiently release a resource (e.g. memory, CPU, disk space, etc.) after it is used. If not addressed, attackers can launch a denial of service attack (by allocating a resource and not releasing it).
