Description

Multiple integer overflows in tools/libxc/xc_dom_bzimageloader.c in Xen 3.2, 3.3, 4.0, and 4.1 allow local users to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted paravirtualised guest kernel image that triggers (1) a buffer overflow during a decompression loop or (2) an out-of-bounds read in the loader involving unspecified length fields.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-xen
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-xen-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-xen-libs

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.
