    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-20815 CVE-2019-13164 CVE-2019-14378
    Debian Bug     : 873012 933741 931351
    
    Multiple security issues were discovered in QEMU, a fast processor
    emulator, which could result in denial of service, the execution of
    arbitrary code or bypass of ACLs.
    
    In addition this update fixes a regression which could cause NBD
    connections to hang.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1:2.8+dfsg-6+deb9u8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of qemu please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
