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

oxenstored in Xen 4.1.x, Xen 4.2.x, and xen-unstable does not properly consider the state of the Xenstore ring during read operations, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (daemon crash and host-control outage, or memory consumption) or obtain sensitive control-plane data by leveraging guest administrative access.
