FreeBSD : xen-kernel -- arm: vgic: incorrect rate limiting of guest triggered logging (912cb7f7-27df-11e5-a4a5-002590263bf5)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 84710
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionThe Xen Project reports :
On ARM systems the code which deals with virtualizing the GIC distributor would, under various circumstances, log messages on a guest accessible code path without appropriate rate limiting.
A malicious guest could cause repeated logging to the hypervisor console, leading to a Denial of Service attack.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
