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: 9.4

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

The XEN hypervisor was updated to fix two security issues :

- Fixed a buffer overflow in the floppy drive emulation, which could be used to denial of service attacks or potential code execution against the host.
(CVE-2015-3456)

- Xen did not initialize certain fields, which allowed certain remote service domains to obtain sensitive information from memory via a (1) XEN_DOMCTL_gettscinfo or (2) XEN_SYSCTL_getdomaininfolist request.
(CVE-2015-3340)

Solution

Update the affected xen packages.
