High Nessus Plugin ID 104252

Synopsis

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

Description

This update for xen fixes several issues: These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2017-5526: The ES1370 audio device emulation support was vulnerable to a memory leakage issue allowing a privileged user inside the guest to cause a DoS and/or potentially crash the Qemu process on the host (bsc#1059777)

- CVE-2017-15593: Missing cleanup in the page type system allowed a malicious or buggy PV guest to cause DoS (XSA-242 bsc#1061084)

- CVE-2017-15592: A problem in the shadow pagetable code allowed a malicious or buggy HVM guest to cause DoS or cause hypervisor memory corruption potentially allowing the guest to escalate its privilege (XSA-243 bsc#1061086)

- CVE-2017-15594: Problematic handling of the selector fields in the Interrupt Descriptor Table (IDT) allowed a malicious or buggy x86 PV guest to escalate its privileges or cause DoS (XSA-244 bsc#1061087)

- CVE-2017-15591: Missing checks in the handling of DMOPs allowed malicious or buggy stub domain kernels or tool stacks otherwise living outside of Domain0 to cause a DoS (XSA-238 bsc#1061077)

- CVE-2017-15589: Intercepted I/O write operations with less than a full machine word's worth of data were not properly handled, which allowed a malicious unprivileged x86 HVM guest to obtain sensitive information from the host or other guests (XSA-239 bsc#1061080)

- CVE-2017-15595: In certain configurations of linear page tables a stack overflow might have occured that allowed a malicious or buggy PV guest to cause DoS and potentially privilege escalation and information leaks (XSA-240 bsc#1061081)

- CVE-2017-15588: Under certain conditions x86 PV guests could have caused the hypervisor to miss a necessary TLB flush for a page. This allowed a malicious x86 PV guest to access all of system memory, allowing for privilege escalation, DoS, and information leaks (XSA-241 bsc#1061082)

- CVE-2017-15590: Multiple issues existed with the setup of PCI MSI interrupts that allowed a malicious or buggy guest to cause DoS and potentially privilege escalation and information leaks (XSA-237 bsc#1061076)

The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.

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.
