openSUSE Security Update : spice (openSUSE-2016-823)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 91943
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
Descriptionspice was updated to fix two security issues.
These security issues were fixed :
- CVE-2016-2150: SPICE allowed local guest OS users to read from or write to arbitrary host memory locations via crafted primary surface parameters, a similar issue to CVE-2015-5261 (boo#982385).
- CVE-2016-0749: The smartcard interaction in SPICE allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (QEMU-KVM process crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to connecting to a guest VM, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow (boo#982385).
SolutionUpdate the affected spice packages.
