The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
This update for xen fixes several issues. This new feature was included : - add script and sysv service to watch for vcpu online/offline events in a HVM domU These security issues were fixed : - CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5754: Prevent information leaks via side effects of speculative execution, aka 'Spectre' and 'Meltdown' attacks (bsc#1074562, bsc#1068032) - CVE-2018-5683: The vga_draw_text function allowed local OS guest privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and QEMU process crash) by leveraging improper memory address validation (bsc#1076116). - CVE-2017-18030: The cirrus_invalidate_region function allowed local OS guest privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access and QEMU process crash) via vectors related to negative pitch (bsc#1076180). - CVE-2017-15595: x86 PV guest OS users were able to cause a DoS (unbounded recursion, stack consumption, and hypervisor crash) or possibly gain privileges via crafted page-table stacking (bsc#1061081) - CVE-2017-17566: Prevent PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges in shadow mode by mapping a certain auxiliary page (bsc#1070158). - CVE-2017-17563: Prevent guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges by leveraging an incorrect mask for reference-count overflow checking in shadow mode (bsc#1070159). - CVE-2017-17564: Prevent guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges by leveraging incorrect error handling for reference counting in shadow mode (bsc#1070160). - CVE-2017-17565: Prevent PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) if shadow mode and log-dirty mode are in place, because of an incorrect assertion related to M2P (bsc#1070163). - Added missing intermediate preemption checks for guest requesting removal of memory. This allowed malicious guest administrator to cause denial of service due to the high cost of this operation (bsc#1080635). - Because of XEN not returning the proper error messages when transitioning grant tables from v2 to v1 a malicious guest was able to cause DoS or potentially allowed for privilege escalation as well as information leaks (bsc#1080662). 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.
