Debian DLA-1270-1 : xen security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 106633
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionMultiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Xen hypervisor, which could result in privilege escalation.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 4.1.6.lts1-12.
We recommend that you upgrade your xen packages.
Please note that CVE-2017-15590 (XSA-237) will *not* be fixed in wheezy as the patches are too intrusive to backport. The vulnerability can be mitigated by not passing through physical devices to untrusted guests. More information can be found on https://xenbits.xen.org/xsa/advisory-237.html
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
