medium Nessus Plugin ID 133419
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

Two security issues have been found in the SLiRP networking implementation of QEMU, a fast processor emulator, which could result in the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service.

Solution

Upgrade the qemu packages.

For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1:2.8+dfsg-6+deb9u9.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 1:3.1+dfsg-8+deb10u4.
