Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in qemu-kvm, a full virtualization solution on x86 hardware :

- Various security issues have been found in the block qemu drivers. Malformed disk images might result in the execution of arbitrary code.
- A NULL pointer dereference in SLIRP may result in denial of service

- An information leak was discovered in the VGA emulation

Solution

Upgrade the qemu-kvm packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.2+dfsg-6+deb7u4.
