Description

An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.9.x allowing x86 HVM guest OS users to obtain sensitive information from the host OS (or an arbitrary guest OS) because intercepted I/O operations can cause a write of data from uninitialized hypervisor stack memory.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-app-emulation-xen
  • 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.
