CVE-2012-5510

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Xen 4.x, when downgrading the grant table version, does not properly remove the status page from the tracking list when freeing the page, which allows local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (hypervisor crash) via unspecified vectors.
