    CVE ID         : CVE-2013-4344 CVE-2014-2894
    Debian Bug     : 745157 725944
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in qemu-kvm, a full
    virtualization solution on x86 hardware.
    
    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-6+deb7u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your qemu-kvm packages.
