    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in qemu-kvm, a full
    virtualization solution on x86 hardware.
    
    CVE-2015-7295
    
        Jason Wang of Red Hat Inc. discovered that the Virtual Network
        Device support is vulnerable to denial-of-service (via resource
        exhaustion), that could occur when receiving large packets.
    
    CVE-2015-7504
    
        Qinghao Tang of Qihoo 360 Inc. and Ling Liu of Qihoo 360 Inc.
        discovered that the PC-Net II ethernet controller is vulnerable to
        a heap-based buffer overflow that could result in
        denial-of-service (via application crash) or arbitrary code
        execution.
    
    CVE-2015-7512
    
        Ling Liu of Qihoo 360 Inc. and Jason Wang of Red Hat Inc.
        discovered that the PC-Net II ethernet controller is vulnerable to
        a buffer overflow that could result in denial-of-service (via
        application crash) or arbitrary code execution.
    
    CVE-2015-8345
    
        Qinghao Tang of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that the eepro100
        emulator contains a flaw that could lead to an infinite loop when
        processing Command Blocks, eventually resulting in
        denial-of-service (via application crash).
    
    CVE-2015-8504
    
        Lian Yihan of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that the VNC display
        driver support is vulnerable to an arithmetic exception flaw that
        could lead to denial-of-service (via application crash).
    
    CVE-2015-8558
    
        Qinghao Tang of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that the USB EHCI
        emulation support contains a flaw that could lead to an infinite
        loop during communication between the host controller and a device
        driver. This could lead to denial-of-service (via resource
        exhaustion).
    
    CVE-2015-8743
    
        Ling Liu of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that the NE2000 emulator is
        vulnerable to an out-of-bound read/write access issue, potentially
        resulting in information leak or memory corruption.
    
    CVE-2016-1568
    
        Qinghao Tang of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that the IDE AHCI
        emulation support is vulnerable to a use-after-free issue, that
        could lead to denial-of-service (via application crash) or
        arbitrary code execution.
    
    CVE-2016-1714
    
        Donghai Zhu of Alibaba discovered that the Firmware Configuration
        emulation support is vulnerable to an out-of-bound read/write
        access issue, that could lead to denial-of-service (via
        application crash) or arbitrary code execution.
    
    CVE-2016-1922
    
        Ling Liu of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that 32-bit Windows guests
        support is vulnerable to a null pointer dereference issue, that
        could lead to denial-of-service (via application crash).
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.1.2+dfsg-6+deb7u12.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your qemu-kvm packages.
