    network interface card of KVM, a solution for full virtualization on 
    x86 hardware, which could result in denial of service or privilege
    escalation.
    
    This update also fixes a guest-triggerable memory corruption in 
    VNC handling.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
