    Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in KVM, a solution for full
    virtualization on x86 hardware:
    
    CVE-2011-2212 
    
       Nelson Elhage discovered a buffer overflow in the virtio subsystem,
       which could lead to denial of service or privilege escalation.
    
    CVE-2011-2527
    
       Andrew Griffiths discovered that group privileges were
       insufficiently dropped when started with -runas option, resulting
       in privilege escalation.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.12.5+dfsg-5+squeeze6.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.14.1+dfsg-3.
