- More information:
Multiple security issues were discovered in QEMU, a fast processor emulator:
An integer overflow in the sm501 display device may result in denial of service.
An out-of-bounds write in the USB emulation code may result in guest-to-host code execution.
A buffer overflow in the XGMAC network device may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.
A triggerable assert in the e1000e and vmxnet3 devices may result in denial of service.
For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 1:3.1+dfsg-8+deb10u8.
We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
