SUSE SLES10 Security Update : Xen (SUSE-SU-2014:1691-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Xen has been updated to fix six security issues :

- Guest effectable page reference leak in
MMU_MACHPHYS_UPDATE handling (CVE-2014-9030).

- Insufficient bounding of 'REP MOVS' to MMIO emulated
inside the hypervisor (CVE-2014-8867).

- Missing privilege level checks in x86 emulation of far
branches (CVE-2014-8595).

- Guest user mode triggerable VM exits not handled by
hypervisor (bnc#903850).

- Missing privilege level checks in x86 HLT, LGDT, LIDT,
and LMSW emulation (CVE-2014-7155).

- Hypervisor heap contents leaked to guests
(CVE-2014-4021).

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