Medium Nessus Plugin ID 84713


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


The Xen Project reports :

Device model code dealing with guest PCI MSI-X interrupt management activities logs messages on certain (supposedly) invalid guest operations.

A buggy or malicious guest repeatedly invoking such operations may result in the host disk to fill up, possibly leading to a Denial of Service.


Update the affected package.
