Description

Xen 4.5.3, 4.6.3, and 4.7.x allow local HVM guest OS administrators to overwrite hypervisor memory and consequently gain host OS privileges by leveraging mishandling of instruction pointer truncation during emulation.

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.
