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.

VPR Score: 3.4


The remote OracleVM host is missing one or more security updates.


The remote OracleVM system is missing necessary patches to address critical security updates :

- x86: check segment descriptor read result in 64-bit OUTS emulation When emulating such an operation from a 64-bit context (CS has long mode set), and the data segment is overridden to FS/GS, the result of reading the overridden segment's descriptor (read_descriptor) is not checked. If it fails, data_base is left uninitialized.
This can lead to 8 bytes of Xen's stack being leaked to the guest (implicitly, i.e. via the address given in a #PF). Coverity-ID: 1055116 This is CVE-2013-4368 / XSA-67.

Fix formatting. (CVE-2013-4368)


Update the affected xen / xen-devel / xen-tools packages.
