[Qemu-devel] [ANNOUNCE] QEMU CVE update released

Hi everyone,

As part of recent planning around stable releases discussed during
KVM Forum, I'm releasing the first of what will be regular (hopefully
not *too* regular) CVE-only stable updates. These updates are
intended to reduce the gap between vulnerability disclosures and
patched/packaged releases.

Please see the changelog for CVE numbers/details. Users are
encouraged to update as soon as possible.

v2.4.0.1 is now tagged in the official qemu.git repository,
and the stable-2.4 branch has been updated accordingly:;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/stable-2.4

These CVE-only releases are produced as-needed and are on no set
release schedule.

Full stable releases are still tentatively planned to continue as they
(mostly) have in the past: 1 mid-cycle stable update, and 1 stable update
at the end of each release cycle, with freeze dates announced in advance
to pull together important fixes. v2.4.1 is currently planned for

Thank you to everyone involved!
