Security Fix(es) :
- An integer overflow flaw and an out-of-bounds read flaw
were found in the way QEMU's VGA emulator set certain
VGA registers while in VBE mode. A privileged guest user
could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process instance.
- An infinite loop flaw was found in the way QEMU's e1000
NIC emulation implementation processed data using
transmit or receive descriptors under certain
conditions. A privileged user inside a guest could use
this flaw to crash the QEMU instance. (CVE-2016-1981)
