    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0150
    Debian Bug     : 744221
    
    Michael S. Tsirkin of Red Hat discovered a buffer overflow flaw in the
    way qemu processed MAC addresses table update requests from the guest.
    
    A privileged guest user could use this flaw to corrupt qemu process
    memory on the host, which could potentially result in arbitrary code
    execution on the host with the privileges of the qemu process.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.12.5+dfsg-3squeeze4.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.1.2+dfsg-6a+deb7u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.7.0+dfsg-8.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.7.0+dfsg-8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
