Description

Xen 3.0.3 through 4.1.x (possibly 4.1.6.1), 4.2.x (possibly 4.2.3), and 4.3.x (possibly 4.3.1) does not properly prevent access to hypercalls, which allows local guest users to gain privileges via a crafted application running in ring 1 or 2.

Solution(s)

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