More information:

Multiple security issues were discovered in QEMU, a fast processor emulator, which could result in denial of service, the execution of arbitrary code or information disclosure.

In addition this update backports support to passthrough the new md-clear CPU flag added in the intel-microcode update shipped in DSA 4447 to x86-based guests.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1:2.8+dfsg-6+deb9u6.

We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
