Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2018-03-19 14:34:56 UTC
CVE-2017-12194 (
  A flaw was found in the way spice-client processed certain messages sent
  from the server. An attacker, having control of malicious spice-server,
  could use this flaw to crash the client or execute arbitrary code with
  permissions of the user running the client. spice-gtk versions through 0.34
  are believed to be vulnerable.

@Maintainers 0.34-r1 is in tree. Please call for stabilization when ready.

Thank you
