The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in kvm, a full virtualization system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2008-5714 Chris Webb discovered an off-by-one bug limiting KVM's VNC passwords to 7 characters. This flaw might make it easier for remote attackers to guess the VNC password, which is limited to seven characters where eight was intended. - CVE-2009-3290 It was discovered that the kvm_emulate_hypercall function in KVM does not prevent access to MMU hypercalls from ring 0, which allows local guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest kernel crash) and read or write guest kernel memory. The oldstable distribution (etch) does not contain kvm.
Upgrade the kvm packages. For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 72+dfsg-5~lenny3.
