    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-3710 CVE-2016-3712
    Debian Bug     : 823830
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in qemu, a fast processor
    emulator.
    
    CVE-2016-3710
    
        Wei Xiao and Qinghao Tang of 360.cn Inc discovered an out-of-bounds
        read and write flaw in the QEMU VGA module. A privileged guest user
        could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the host with the
        privileges of the hosting QEMU process.
    
    CVE-2016-3712
    
        Zuozhi Fzz of Alibaba Inc discovered potential integer overflow
        or out-of-bounds read access issues in the QEMU VGA module. A
        privileged guest user could use this flaw to mount a denial of
        service (QEMU process crash).
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:2.1+dfsg-12+deb8u6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
