Package : qemu Version : 1:2.1+dfsg-12+deb8u11 CVE ID : CVE-2018-11806 CVE-2018-18849 CVE-2018-20815 CVE-2019-9824 Debian Bug : 901017 912535

Several vulnerabilities were found in QEMU, a fast processor emulator:


It was found that the SLiRP networking implementation could use a wrong
size when reallocating its buffers, which can be exploited by a
priviledged user on a guest to cause denial of service or possibly
arbitrary code execution on the host system.


It was found that the LSI53C895A SCSI Host Bus Adapter emulation was
susceptible to an out of bounds memory access, which could be leveraged
by a malicious guest user to crash the QEMU process.


A heap buffer overflow was found in the load_device_tree function,
which could be used by a malicious user to potentially execute
arbitrary code with the priviledges of the QEMU process.


William Bowling discovered that the SLiRP networking implementation did
not handle some messages properly, which could be triggered to leak
memory via crafted messages.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version 1:2.1+dfsg-12+deb8u11.

We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
