    Vincent Tondellier reported that the qemu update issued as DSA 4454-1 did not correctly backport the support to define the md-clear bit to allow mitigation of the MDS vulnerabilities. Updated qemu packages are now available to correct this issue.

    Package        : qemu
    Debian Bug     : 929067
    
    Vincent Tondellier reported that the qemu update issued as DSA 4454-1
    did not correctly backport the support to define the md-clear bit to
    allow mitigation of the MDS vulnerabilities. Updated qemu packages are
    now available to correct this issue.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:2.8+dfsg-6+deb9u7.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of qemu please refer to its security
    tracker page at:
