Publication date: 10 Nov 2020
URL: https://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2020-0408.html
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases: 7
CVE: CVE-202020-14355

Multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities were found in the QUIC image decoding
process of the SPICE remote display system, before spice-0.14.2-1. Both the
SPICE client (spice-gtk) and server are affected by these flaws. These flaws
allow a malicious client or server to send specially crafted messages that,
when processed by the QUIC image compression algorithm, result in a process
crash or potential code execution.
