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 was updated to fix two security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2015-3259: xl command line config handling stack
overflow (bsc#935634, XSA-137).

- CVE-2015-5154: Host code execution via IDE subsystem

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.
