Description

Xen 4.1.x and 4.2.x, when the XSA-45 patch is in place, does not properly maintain references on pages stored for deferred cleanup, which allows local PV guest kernels to cause a denial of service (premature page free and hypervisor crash) or possibly gain privileges 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.
