- Date Reported:
- 08 Oct 2017
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-14167, CVE-2017-15038.
- More information:
Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in qemu-kvm, a full virtualization solution for Linux hosts on x86 hardware with x86 guests based on the Quick Emulator(Qemu).
Incorrect validation of multiboot headers could result in the execution of arbitrary code.
When using 9pfs qemu-kvm is vulnerable to an information disclosure issue. It could occur while accessing extended attributes of a file due to a race condition. This could be used to disclose heap memory contents of the host.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.2+dfsg-6+deb7u24.
We recommend that you upgrade your qemu-kvm packages.
