    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the qemu virtualisation
    solution:
    
    CVE-2014-9718
    
        It was discovered that the IDE controller emulation is susceptible
        to denial of service.
    
    CVE-2015-1779
    
        Daniel P. Berrange discovered a denial of service vulnerability in
        the VNC web socket decoder. 
    
    CVE-2015-2756
    
        Jan Beulich discovered that unmediated PCI command register could
        result in denial of service.
    
    CVE-2015-3456
    
        Jason Geffner discovered a buffer overflow in the emulated floppy
        disk drive, resulting in the potential execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.1.2+dfsg-6a+deb7u7 of the qemu source package and in version
    1.1.2+dfsg-6+deb7u7 of the qemu-kvm source package. Only CVE-2015-3456
    affects oldstable.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:2.1+dfsg-12.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
