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.

tracker page at:
