Package        : qemu-kvm
Vulnerability  : buffer underflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2012-0029 

Nicolae Mogoraenu discovered a heap overflow in the emulated e1000e
network interface card of KVM, a solution for full virtualization on 
x86 hardware, which could result in denial of service or privilege
escalation.

This update also fixes a guest-triggerable memory corruption in 
VNC handling.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.12.5+dfsg-5+squeeze8. 

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0+dfsg-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your qemu-kvm packages.
