High Nessus Plugin ID 83616

Synopsis

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

Description

The SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1 LTSS Xen hypervisor and toolset have been updated to fix various security issues and some bugs.

The following security issues have been addressed :

XSA-84: CVE-2014-1894: Xen 3.2 (and presumably earlier) exhibit both problems with the overflow issue being present for more than just the suboperations listed above. (bnc#860163)

XSA-84: CVE-2014-1892 CVE-2014-1893: Xen 3.3 through 4.1, while not affected by the above overflow, have a different overflow issue on FLASK_{GET,SET}BOOL and expose unreasonably large memory allocation to arbitrary guests.
(bnc#860163)

XSA-84: CVE-2014-1891: The FLASK_{GET,SET}BOOL, FLASK_USER and FLASK_CONTEXT_TO_SID suboperations of the flask hypercall are vulnerable to an integer overflow on the input size. The hypercalls attempt to allocate a buffer which is 1 larger than this size and is therefore vulnerable to integer overflow and an attempt to allocate then access a zero byte buffer. (bnc#860163)

XSA-82: CVE-2013-6885: The microcode on AMD 16h 00h through 0Fh processors does not properly handle the interaction between locked instructions and write-combined memory types, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system hang) via a crafted application, aka the errata 793 issue. (bnc#853049)

XSA-76: CVE-2013-4554: Xen 3.0.3 through 4.1.x (possibly 4.1.6.1), 4.2.x (possibly 4.2.3), and 4.3.x (possibly 4.3.1) does not properly prevent access to hypercalls, which allows local guest users to gain privileges via a crafted application running in ring 1 or 2. (bnc#849668)

XSA-74: CVE-2013-4553: The XEN_DOMCTL_getmemlist hypercall in Xen 3.4.x through 4.3.x (possibly 4.3.1) does not always obtain the page_alloc_lock and mm_rwlock in the same order, which allows local guest administrators to cause a denial of service (host deadlock). (bnc#849667)

XSA-73: CVE-2013-4494: Xen before 4.1.x, 4.2.x, and 4.3.x does not take the page_alloc_lock and grant_table.lock in the same order, which allows local guest administrators with access to multiple vcpus to cause a denial of service (host deadlock) via unspecified vectors. (bnc#848657)

XSA-67: CVE-2013-4368: The outs instruction emulation in Xen 3.1.x, 4.2.x, 4.3.x, and earlier, when using FS: or GS:
segment override, uses an uninitialized variable as a segment base, which allows local 64-bit PV guests to obtain sensitive information (hypervisor stack content) via unspecified vectors related to stale data in a segment register. (bnc#842511)

XSA-66: CVE-2013-4361: The fbld instruction emulation in Xen 3.3.x through 4.3.x does not use the correct variable for the source effective address, which allows local HVM guests to obtain hypervisor stack information by reading the values used by the instruction. (bnc#841766)

XSA-63: CVE-2013-4355: Xen 4.3.x and earlier does not properly handle certain errors, which allows local HVM guests to obtain hypervisor stack memory via a (1) port or (2) memory mapped I/O write or (3) other unspecified operations related to addresses without associated memory.
(bnc#840592)

XSA-62: CVE-2013-1442: Xen 4.0 through 4.3.x, when using AVX or LWP capable CPUs, does not properly clear previous data from registers when using an XSAVE or XRSTOR to extend the state components of a saved or restored vCPU after touching other restored extended registers, which allows local guest OSes to obtain sensitive information by reading the registers. (bnc#839596)

XSA-61: CVE-2013-4329: The xenlight library (libxl) in Xen 4.0.x through 4.2.x, when IOMMU is disabled, provides access to a busmastering-capable PCI passthrough device before the IOMMU setup is complete, which allows local HVM guest domains to gain privileges or cause a denial of service via a DMA instruction. (bnc#839618)

XSA-60: CVE-2013-2212: The vmx_set_uc_mode function in Xen 3.3 through 4.3, when disabling chaches, allows local HVM guests with access to memory mapped I/O regions to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption and possibly hypervisor or guest kernel panic) via a crafted GFN range. (bnc#831120)

XSA-58: CVE-2013-1918: Certain page table manipulation operations in Xen 4.1.x, 4.2.x, and earlier are not preemptible, which allows local PV kernels to cause a denial of service via vectors related to 'deep page table traversal.' (bnc#826882)

XSA-58: CVE-2013-1432: Xen 4.1.x and 4.2.x, when the XSA-45 patch is in place, does not properly maintain references on pages stored for deferred cleanup, which allows local PV guest kernels to cause a denial of service (premature page free and hypervisor crash) or possible gain privileges via unspecified vectors. (bnc#826882)

XSA-57: CVE-2013-2211: The libxenlight (libxl) toolstack library in Xen 4.0.x, 4.1.x, and 4.2.x uses weak permissions for xenstore keys for paravirtualised and emulated serial console devices, which allows local guest administrators to modify the xenstore value via unspecified vectors.
(bnc#823608)

XSA-56: CVE-2013-2072: Buffer overflow in the Python bindings for the xc_vcpu_setaffinity call in Xen 4.0.x, 4.1.x, and 4.2.x allows local administrators with permissions to configure VCPU affinity to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and xend toolstack crash) and possibly gain privileges via a crafted cpumap. (bnc#819416)

XSA-55: CVE-2013-2196: Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the Elf parser (libelf) in Xen 4.2.x and earlier allow local guest administrators with certain permissions to have an unspecified impact via a crafted kernel, related to 'other problems' that are not CVE-2013-2194 or CVE-2013-2195. (bnc#823011)

XSA-55: CVE-2013-2195: The Elf parser (libelf) in Xen 4.2.x and earlier allow local guest administrators with certain permissions to have an unspecified impact via a crafted kernel, related to 'pointer dereferences' involving unexpected calculations. (bnc#823011)

XSA-55: CVE-2013-2194: Multiple integer overflows in the Elf parser (libelf) in Xen 4.2.x and earlier allow local guest administrators with certain permissions to have an unspecified impact via a crafted kernel. (bnc#823011)

(bnc#820919)

XSA-52: CVE-2013-2076: Xen 4.0.x, 4.1.x, and 4.2.x, when running on AMD64 processors, only save/restore the FOP, FIP, and FDP x87 registers in FXSAVE/FXRSTOR when an exception is pending, which allows one domain to determine portions of the state of floating point instructions of other domains, which can be leveraged to obtain sensitive information such as cryptographic keys, a similar vulnerability to CVE-2006-1056. NOTE: this is the documented behavior of AMD64 processors, but it is inconsistent with Intel processors in a security-relevant fashion that was not addressed by the kernels. (bnc#820917)

XSA-50: CVE-2013-1964: Xen 4.0.x and 4.1.x incorrectly releases a grant reference when releasing a non-v1, non-transitive grant, which allows local guest administrators to cause a denial of service (host crash), obtain sensitive information, or possible have other impacts via unspecified vectors. (bnc#816156)

XSA-36: CVE-2013-0153: The AMD IOMMU support in Xen 4.2.x, 4.1.x, 3.3, and other versions, when using AMD-Vi for PCI passthrough, uses the same interrupt remapping table for the host and all guests, which allows guests to cause a denial of service by injecting an interrupt into other guests.
(bnc#800275)

XSA-33: CVE-2012-5634: Xen 4.2.x, 4.1.x, and 4.0, when using Intel VT-d for PCI passthrough, does not properly configure VT-d when supporting a device that is behind a legacy PCI Bridge, which allows local guests to cause a denial of service to other guests by injecting an interrupt.
(bnc#794316)

XSA-31: CVE-2012-5515: The (1) XENMEM_decrease_reservation, (2) XENMEM_populate_physmap, and (3) XENMEM_exchange hypercalls in Xen 4.2 and earlier allow local guest administrators to cause a denial of service (long loop and hang) via a crafted extent_order value. (bnc#789950)
