New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.7
SynopsisThe remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Citrix XenServer running on the remote host is missing a security hotfix. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A flaw exists due to improper handling of pagetable walks that contain recursive L3 pagetable entries. An attacker on the guest can exploit this to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-7092)
- A flaw exists due to improper handling of instruction pointer truncation when emulating HVM instructions. An attacker on the guest can exploit this to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-7093)
- An overflow condition exists in the x86 HVM guests due to improper handling of writing to pagetables, specifically when the guest is running shadow paging using a subset of the x86 emulator. An attacker on the guest can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition on the host. (CVE-2016-7094)
- A use-after-free error exists when calling the EVTCHNOP_init_control operation with a bad guest frame number. An attacker on the guest can exploit this, by freeing a control structure without also clearing the corresponding pointer, to crash the host or potentially gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-7154)
SolutionApply the appropriate hotfix according to the vendor advisory.
