Package        : xen-qemu-dm-4.0
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
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 QEMU, which is used in the xen-qemu-dm-4.0
packages.  This vulnerability might enable to malicious guest systems
to crash the host system or escalate their privileges.

The old stable distribution (lenny) does not contain the
xen-qemu-dm-4.0 package.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.0.1-2+squeeze1.

The testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution (sid)
will be fixed soon.
