    Package        : spice
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-10873
    Debian Bug     : 906315
    
    Frediano Ziglio reported a missing check in the script to generate
    demarshalling code in the SPICE protocol client and server library. The
    generated demarshalling code is prone to multiple buffer overflows. An
    authenticated attacker can take advantage of this flaw to cause a denial
    of service (spice server crash), or possibly, execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.12.8-2.1+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your spice packages.
