  • CVE-2020-16092

Debian Bug: 961451 968947

Multiple security issues were discovered in QEMU, a fast processor emulator:

An integer overflow in the sm501 display device may result in denial of service.

An out-of-bands write in the USB emulation code may result in guest-to-host code execution.

A buffer overflow in the XGMAC network device may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.

A triggerable assert in the e1000e and vmxnet3 devices may result in denial of service.

For the stable distribution Debian 10 "Buster", these problems have been fixed in version 1:3.1+dfsg-8+deb10u8.

We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.

For the detailed security status of qemu please refer to its security tracker page.
