Debian DSA-3414-1 : xen - security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 87288
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.

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple security issues have been found in the Xen virtualisation solution, which may result in denial of service or information disclosure.

Solution

Upgrade the xen packages.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), an update will be provided later.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 4.4.1-9+deb8u3.
