[SECURITY] [DLA 1128-1] qemu-kvm security update

Package        : qemu-kvm
Version        : 1.1.2+dfsg-6+deb7u24
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-14167 CVE-2017-15038

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

We recommend that you upgrade your qemu-kvm packages.
