Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in spice, a SPICE protocol
client and server library. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following issues:

CVE-2013-4130

  David Gibson of Red Hat discovered that SPICE incorrectly handled
  certain network errors. A remote user able to initiate a SPICE
  connection to an application acting as a SPICE server could use this
  flaw to crash the application.

CVE-2013-4282

  Tomas Jamrisko of Red Hat discovered that SPICE incorrectly handled
  long passwords in SPICE tickets. A remote user able to initiate a
  SPICE connection to an application acting as a SPICE server could use
  this flaw to crash the application.

Applications acting as a SPICE server must be restarted for this update
to take effect.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.11.0-1+deb7u1.

For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.12.4-0nocelt2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.12.4-0nocelt2.

We recommend that you upgrade your spice packages.
