Description

The hvm_set_callback_via function in arch/x86/hvm/irq.c in Xen 4.6 does not limit the number of printk console messages when logging the new callback method, which allows local HVM guest OS users to cause a denial of service via a large number of changes to the callback method (HVM_PARAM_CALLBACK_IRQ).

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.
