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

The HVMOP_set_mem_access HVM control operations in Xen 4.1.x for 32-bit and 4.1.x through 4.4.x for 64-bit allow local guest administrators to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) by leveraging access to certain service domains for HVM guests and a large input.
