    qemu vulnerabilities
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    - Ubuntu 19.10
    - Ubuntu 19.04
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    Several security issues were fixed in QEMU.
    Software Description:
    - qemu: Machine emulator and virtualizer
    It was discovered that the LSI SCSI adapter emulator implementation in QEMU
    did not properly validate executed scripts. A local attacker could use this
    to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2019-12068)
    Sergej Schumilo, Cornelius Aschermann and Simon Wörner discovered that the
    qxl paravirtual graphics driver implementation in QEMU contained a null
    pointer dereference. A local attacker in a guest could use this to cause a
    denial of service. (CVE-2019-12155)
    Riccardo Schirone discovered that the QEMU bridge helper did not properly
    validate network interface names. A local attacker could possibly use this
    to bypass ACL restrictions. (CVE-2019-13164)
    It was discovered that a heap-based buffer overflow existed in the SLiRP
    networking implementation of QEMU. A local attacker in a guest could use
    this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code in the
    host. (CVE-2019-14378)
    It was discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the SLiRP
    networking implementation of QEMU. A local attacker in a guest could use
    this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2019-15890)
