Debian Security Advisory DSA-2608-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Florian Weimer January 15, 2013 http://www.debian.org/security/faq

Package : qemu Vulnerability : buffer overflow Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2012-6075 Debian Bug : 696051

It was discovered that the e1000 emulation code in QEMU does not enforce frame size limits in the same way as the real hardware does. This could trigger buffer overflows in the guest operating system driver for that network card, assuming that the host system does not discard such frames (which it will by default).

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 0.12.5+dfsg-3squeeze3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.1.2+dfsg-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
