openSUSE Security Update : qemu (openSUSE-SU-2014:0200-1)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 75249
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 openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

Running QEMU in a configuration with more than 256 emulated SCSI devices attached could have caused a buffer overflow when the guest issues a REPORT LUNS command. Fix this as part of upgrading to the latest stable version on 13.1. Also fix unintentional building against gtk2 rather than gtk3 on 13.1, and fix serial retry logic on 12.3.

Solution

Update the affected qemu packages.
