Language:

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.2

Synopsis

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

On certain Intel 64-bit x86 systems there is a period of time during terminal fault handling where the CPU may use speculative execution to try to load data. The CPU may speculatively access the level 1 data cache (L1D). Data which would otherwise be protected may then be determined by using side channel methods.

This issue affects bhyve on FreeBSD/amd64 systems. Impact : An attacker executing user code, or kernel code inside of a virtual machine, may be able to read secret data from the kernel or from another virtual machine.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
