    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 19.10
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in QEMU.
    
    Software Description:
    - qemu: Machine emulator and virtualizer
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled bochs-display devices. A
    local attacker in a guest could use this to cause a denial of service or
    possibly execute arbitrary code in the host. This issue only affected
    Ubuntu 19.10. (CVE-2019-15034)
    
    It was discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled memory during certain VNC
    operations. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause QEMU
    to consume resources, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only
    affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 19.10.
    (CVE-2019-20382)
    
    It was discovered that QEMU incorrectly generated QEMU Pointer
    Authentication signatures on ARM. A local attacker could possibly use this
    issue to bypass PAuth. This issue only affected Ubuntu 19.10.
    (CVE-2020-10702)
    
    Ziming Zhang discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled ATI VGA emulation. A
    local attacker in a guest could use this issue to cause QEMU to crash,
    resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 20.04
    LTS. (CVE-2020-11869)
    
    Aviv Sasson discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled Slirp networking. A
    remote attacker could use this issue to cause QEMU to crash, resulting in a
    denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. This issue only
    affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 19.10.
    (CVE-2020-1983)
