Description

The Debian Security Team reports :

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the QEMU processor emulator, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

CVE-2007-1320Tavis Ormandy discovered that a memory management routine of the Cirrus video driver performs insufficient bounds checking, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code through a heap overflow.

CVE-2007-1322Tavis Ormandy discovered that the 'icebp' instruction can be abused to terminate the emulation, resulting in denial of service.

CVE-2007-1323Tavis Ormandy discovered that the NE2000 network driver and the socket code perform insufficient input validation, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code through a heap overflow.
