    Debian Bug     : 797976
    
    Frediano Ziglio of Red Hat discovered a race condition flaw in spice's
    worker_update_monitors_config() function, leading to a heap-based memory
    corruption. A malicious user in a guest can take advantage of this flaw
    to cause a denial of service (QEMU process crash) or, potentially
    execute arbitrary code on the host with the privileges of the hosting
    QEMU process.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.12.5-1+deb8u1.
