Updated spice and spice-gtk packages fix a security vulnerability

Publication date: 10 Nov 2020
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 7
CVE: CVE-2020-14355


Multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities were found in the QUIC image decoding
process of the SPICE remote display system, before spice-0.14.2-1. Both the
SPICE client (spice-gtk) and server are affected by these flaws. These flaws
allow a malicious client or server to send specially crafted messages that,
when processed by the QUIC image compression algorithm, result in a process
crash or potential code execution.
