FreeBSD : xen-tools -- populate-on-demand balloon size inaccuracy can crash guests (c0e76d33-8821-11e5-ab94-002590263bf5)

low Nessus Plugin ID 86839
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


The Xen Project reports :

Guests configured with PoD might be unstable, especially under load.
In an affected guest, an unprivileged guest user might be able to cause a guest crash, perhaps simply by applying load so as to cause heavy memory pressure within the guest.


Update the affected package.
