Description

Xen 4.x, when downgrading the grant table version, does not properly remove the status page from the tracking list when freeing the page, which allows local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (hypervisor crash) via unspecified vectors.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-app-emulation-xen
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-app-emulation-xen-pvgrub
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-app-emulation-xen-tools

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.
