Description

The libxl toolstack library in Xen 4.1.x through 4.6.x does not properly release mappings of files used as kernels and initial ramdisks when managing multiple domains in the same process, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (memory and disk consumption) by starting domains.

Solution(s)

  • alpine-linux-upgrade-linux-grsec
  • alpine-linux-upgrade-linux-vanilla
  • alpine-linux-upgrade-qemu
  • alpine-linux-upgrade-xen

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
