Debian Bug     : 970253 965978 970539 974687 976388

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in QEMU, a fast processor
emulator (notably used in KVM and Xen HVM virtualization). An attacker
could trigger a denial-of-service (DoS), information leak, and
possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the QEMU
process on the host.


    A MemoryRegionOps object may lack read/write callback methods,
    leading to a NULL pointer dereference.


    QEMU has a use-after-free in hw/net/e1000e_core.c because a guest
    OS user can trigger an e1000e packet with the data's address set
    to the e1000e's MMIO address.


    QEMU has a use-after-free in hw/usb/hcd-xhci.c because the
    usb_packet_map return value is not checked.


    hw/net/e1000e_core.c has an infinite loop via an RX descriptor
    with a NULL buffer address.


    slirp.c has a buffer over-read because it tries to read a certain
    amount of header data even if that exceeds the total packet


    ide_atapi_cmd_reply_end in hw/ide/atapi.c allows out-of-bounds
    read access because a buffer index is not validated.


    9pfs: ZDI-CAN-10904: QEMU Plan 9 file system TOCTOU privilege
    escalation vulnerability.


    aarch64: GIC: out-of-bound heap buffer access via an interrupt ID

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.
