Description

Multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities in vnc.c in the VNC server in QEMU 0.10.6 and earlier might allow guest OS users to execute arbitrary code on the host OS by establishing a connection from a VNC client and then (1) disconnecting during data transfer, (2) sending a message using incorrect integer data types, or (3) using the Fuzzy Screen Mode protocol, related to double free vulnerabilities.
