Debian DSA-4454-1 : qemu - security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 125609
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Multiple security issues were discovered in QEMU, a fast processor emulator, which could result in denial of service, the execution of arbitrary code or information disclosure.

In addition this update backports support to passthrough the new md-clear CPU flag added in the intel-microcode update shipped in DSA 4447 to x86-based guests.

Solution

Upgrade the qemu packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1:2.8+dfsg-6+deb9u6.
