    Frediano Ziglio of Red Hat discovered several vulnerabilities in spice,
    a SPICE protocol client and server library. A malicious guest can
    exploit these flaws to cause a denial of service (QEMU process crash),
    execute arbitrary code on the host with the privileges of the hosting
    QEMU process or read and write arbitrary memory locations on the host.
