openSUSE Security Update : xen (xen-1239)
High Nessus Plugin ID 40844
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
Descriptionxend did not properly enforce access control of the xenstore directory tree, therefore allowing guest VM's to write there. This could lead to security problems if other applications such as libvirt are not prepared for untrusted data in the xenstore directory (CVE-2008-4405).
SolutionUpdate the affected xen packages.
