    Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4572-1
    October 06, 2020
    
    spice vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Spice could be made to crash or run programs if it received specially
    crafted network traffic.
    
    Software Description:
    - spice: SPICE protocol client and server library
    
    Details:
    
    Frediano Ziglio discovered that Spice incorrectly handled QUIC image
    decoding. A remote attacker could use this to cause Spice to crash,
    resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
      libspice-server1                0.14.2-4ubuntu3.1
    
    Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
      libspice-server1                0.14.0-1ubuntu2.5
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      libspice-server1                0.12.6-4ubuntu0.5
    
    After a standard system update you need to restart qemu guests to make all
    the necessary changes.
