Package        : qemu
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2012-6075
Debian Bug     : 696051

It was discovered that the e1000 emulation code in QEMU does not
enforce frame size limits in the same way as the real hardware does.
This could trigger buffer overflows in the guest operating system
driver for that network card, assuming that the host system does not
discard such frames (which it will by default).

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.12.5+dfsg-3squeeze3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.2+dfsg-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your qemu packages.

Spotlight

Cloned, booby-trapped Dark Web sites steal bitcoins, login credentials

Apart from being a way for dissidents and journalists to do their business without being spotted and identified by "the powers that be", the Dark Web is also a place where criminals sell and buy illegal wares and services and, apparently, where they also get robbed by scammers.
