      David Gibson of Red Hat discovered that SPICE incorrectly handled

      Tomas Jamrisko of Red Hat discovered that SPICE incorrectly handled
      long passwords in SPICE tickets. A remote user able to initiate a
      SPICE connection to an application acting as a SPICE server could use
      this flaw to crash the application.
    
    Applications acting as a SPICE server must be restarted for this update
    to take effect.
