The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
The Xen Project reports :
When emulating HVM instructions, Xen uses a small i-cache for fetches
from guest memory. The code that handles cache misses does not check
if the address from which it fetched lies within the cache before
blindly writing to it. As such it is possible for the guest to
overwrite hypervisor memory.
It is currently believed that the only way to trigger this bug is to
use the way that Xen currently incorrectly wraps CS:IP in 16 bit
modes. The included patch prevents such wrapping.
A malicious HVM guest administrator can escalate their privilege to
that of the host.
