SUSE SLES11 Security Update : Xen (SUSE-SU-2015:1156-1)

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

CVE-2015-4103: Potential unintended writes to host MSI message data field via qemu. (XSA-128, bsc#931625)

CVE-2015-4104: PCI MSI mask bits inadvertently exposed to guests.

CVE-2015-4164: DoS through iret hypercall handler. (XSA-136, bsc#932996)

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.
