Debian DLA-2469-1 : qemu security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 143305

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Some issues have been found in qemu, a fast processor emulator.

All issues are related to assertion failures, out-of-bounds access failures or bad handling of return codes.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 1:2.8+dfsg-6+deb9u12.

We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.

For the detailed security status of qemu please refer to its security tracker page at: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/qemu

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
