Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: spice: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 202007-30)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2020-07-27
Bug(s): #717776
ID: 202007-30


A buffer overread has been discovered in spice possibly allowing
remote execution of code.


Provides a complete open source solution for remote access to virtual
machines in a seamless way so you can play videos, record audio, share
USB devices, and share folders without complications.

Affected Packages

Package: app-emulation/spice
Vulnerable: < 0.14.2
Unaffected: >= 0.14.2
Architectures: All supported architectures


A flaw in spice’s memory handling code has been discovered, allowing
an out of bounds read.


A remote attacker may be able to send malicious packets causing remote
code execution.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All spice users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-emulation/spice-0.14.2"
