Fedora 19 : xen-4.2.5-5.fc19 (2014-15503)

high Nessus Plugin ID 79651
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Guest effectable page reference leak in MMU_MACHPHYS_UPDATE handling Insufficient restrictions on certain MMU update hypercalls, Missing privilege level checks in x86 emulation of far branches, Add fix for CVE-2014-0150 to qemu-dm, though it probably isn't exploitable from xen

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected xen package.
