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's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionMultiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Xen hypervisor, which could result in denial of service, guest-to-host privilege escalation or information leaks.
In addition this update provides mitigations for the 'TSX Asynchronous Abort'speculative side channel attack. For additional information please refer to https://xenbits.xen.org/xsa/advisory-305.html
SolutionUpgrade the xen packages.
For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 4.8.5.final+shim4.10.4-1+deb9u12. Note that this will be the last security update for Xen in the oldstable distribution;
upstream support for the 4.8.x branch ended by the end of December 2019. If you rely on security support for your Xen installation an update to the stable distribution (buster) is recommended.
For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 4.11.3+24-g14b62ab3e5-1~deb10u1.
