    Multiple security issues were discovered in QEMU, a fast processor
    emulator:
    
    CVE-2020-12829
    
        An integer overflow in the sm501 display device may result in denial of
        service.
    
    CVE-2020-14364
    
        An out-of-bands write in the USB emulation code may result in
        guest-to-host code execution.
    
    CVE-2020-15863
    
        A buffer overflow in the XGMAC network device may result in denial of
        service or the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2020-16092
    
        A triggerable assert in the e1000e and vmxnet3 devices may result in
        denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:3.1+dfsg-8+deb10u8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
