    Package        : spice
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-0749 CVE-2016-2150
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in spice, a SPICE protocol
    client and server library. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2016-0749
    
        Jing Zhao of Red Hat discovered a memory allocation flaw, leading to
        a heap-based buffer overflow in spice's smartcard interaction. A
        user connecting to a guest VM via spice can take advantage of this
        flaw to cause a denial-of-service (QEMU process crash), or
        potentially to execute arbitrary code on the host with the
        privileges of the hosting QEMU process.
    
    CVE-2016-2150
    
        Frediano Ziglio of Red Hat discovered that a malicious guest inside
        a virtual machine can take control of the corresponding QEMU process
        in the host using crafted primary surface parameters.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.12.5-1+deb8u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your spice packages.
