Description

Xen 4.2.x and 4.3.x, when nested virtualization is disabled, does not properly check the emulation paths for (1) VMLAUNCH and (2) VMRESUME, which allows local HVM guest users to cause a denial of service (host crash) via unspecified vectors related to "guest VMX instruction execution."

Solution(s)

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