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.
