Citrix XenServer Multiple Vulnerabilities (CTX200892)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 83163

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

The version of Citrix XenServer installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the VGA emulator in QEMU that allows a local guest user to read host memory by setting the display to a high resolution. (CVE-2014-3615)

- A flaw exists in the set_pixel_format() function within ui/vnc.c in QEMU that allows a remote attacker, using a small bytes_per_pixel value, to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2014-7815)

- A heap-based buffer overflow flaw exists in the Cirrus VGA emulator that allows local guest users to execute arbitrary code via vectors related to blit regions.
(CVE-2014-8106)

Note that environments that contain only PV guests are not vulnerable to these issues.

Solution

Apply the relevant hotfix referenced in the vendor advisory.
