CVE-2015-8555

HIGH
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 4.6.x, 4.5.x, 4.4.x, 4.3.x, and earlier do not initialize x86 FPU stack and XMM registers when XSAVE/XRSTOR are not used to manage guest extended register state, which allows local guest domains to obtain sensitive information from other domains via unspecified vectors.
