Herbert Xu found a security issue in the Xen hypervisor, which would
allow a malicious guest to access a freed grant table page after
freeing and possibly having it reallocated to another guest.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
