Frediano Ziglio of Red Hat discovered several vulnerabilities in spice, a SPICE protocol client and server library. A malicious guest can exploit these flaws to cause a denial of service (QEMU process crash), execute arbitrary code on the host with the privileges of the hosting QEMU process or read and write arbitrary memory locations on the host.
For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 0.11.0-1+deb7u2.
For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 0.12.5-1+deb8u2.
