New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

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.
