    spice vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 13.04
    
    Summary:
    
    SPICE could be made to crash if it received specially crafted network
    traffic.
    
    Software Description:
    - spice: SPICE protocol client and server library
    
    Details:
    
    David Gibson discovered that SPICE incorrectly handled certain network
    errors. An attacker could use this issue to cause the SPICE server to
    crash, resulting in a denial of service.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 13.04:
      libspice-server1                0.12.2-0nocelt2expubuntu1.1
    
    After a standard system update you need to restart applications using the
    SPICE protocol, such as QEMU, to make all the necessary changes.
