Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

spice was updated to fix two security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2016-2150: SPICE allowed local guest OS users to
read from or write to arbitrary host memory locations
via crafted primary surface parameters, a similar issue
to CVE-2015-5261 (boo#982385).

- CVE-2016-0749: The smartcard interaction in SPICE
allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(QEMU-KVM process crash) or possibly execute arbitrary
code via vectors related to connecting to a guest VM,
which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow
