Package : qemu-kvm CVE ID : CVE-2014-0142 CVE-2014-0143 CVE-2014-0144 CVE-2014-0145 CVE-2014-0146 CVE-2014-0147 CVE-2014-0222 CVE-2014-0223 CVE-2014-3615 CVE-2014-3640

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

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

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your qemu-kvm packages.
