SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : qemu (SUSE-SU-2015:1519-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 85902


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


qemu was updated to fix two security issues and augments one non-security bug fix.

The following vulnerabilities were fixed :

- CVE-2015-3209: heap overflow in qemu pcnet controller allowing guest to host escape (XSA-135) (bsc#932770)

- CVE-2015-4037: Avoid predictable directory name for smb config (bsc#932267)

The fix for the following non-security bug was improved :

- bsc#893892: Use improved upstream patch for display issue affecting installs of SLES 11 VMs on SLES 12

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