SUSE SLES10 Security Update : Xen (SUSE-SU-2015:0744-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 83717
SynopsisThe remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe Virtualization service XEN was updated to fix various bugs and security issues.
The following security issues have been fixed :
XSA-125: Long latency MMIO mapping operations were not preemptible.
CVE-2015-2151: XSA-123: Instructions with register operands ignored eventual segment overrides encoded for them. Due to an insufficiently conditional assignment such a bogus segment override could have, however, corrupted a pointer used subsequently to store the result of the instruction.
CVE-2015-2045: XSA-122: The code handling certain sub-operations of the HYPERVISOR_xen_version hypercall failed to fully initialize all fields of structures subsequently copied back to guest memory. Due to this hypervisor stack contents were copied into the destination of the operation, thus becoming visible to the guest.
CVE-2015-2044: XSA-121: Emulation routines in the hypervisor dealing with certain system devices checked whether the access size by the guest is a supported one. When the access size is unsupported these routines failed to set the data to be returned to the guest for read accesses, so that hypervisor stack contents were copied into the destination of the operation, thus becoming visible to the guest.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
