A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

– Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary:

Spice could be made to crash or run programs if it received specially
crafted network traffic.

Software Description:
– spice: SPICE protocol client and server library

Details:

Frediano Ziglio discovered that Spice incorrectly handled QUIC image
decoding. A remote attacker could use this to cause Spice to crash,
resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:

After a standard system update you need to restart qemu guests to make all
the necessary changes.
