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 Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201309-24 (Xen: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Xen. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
Guest domains could possibly gain privileges, execute arbitrary code, or cause a Denial of Service on the host domain (Dom0). Additionally, guest domains could gain information about other virtual machines running on the same host or read arbitrary files on the host.
The CVEs listed below do not currently have fixes, but only apply to Xen setups which have “tmem” specified on the hypervisor command line.
TMEM is not currently supported for use in production systems, and administrators using tmem should disable it.
