    Debian Bug     : 745157 725944
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in qemu, a fast processor emulator.
    
    CVE-2013-4344
    
        Buffer overflow in the SCSI implementation in QEMU, 
        when a SCSI controller has more than 256 attached devices, allows
        local users to gain privileges via a small transfer buffer in a
        REPORT LUNS command.
    
    CVE-2014-2894
    
        Off-by-one error in the cmd_smart function in the smart self test in
        hw/ide/core.c in QEMU allows local users to have
        unspecified impact via a SMART EXECUTE OFFLINE command that triggers
        a buffer underflow and memory corruption.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.1.2+dfsg-6a+deb7u3.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.0.0+dfsg-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.0.0+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
