Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update for xen fixes several issues. These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2014-3672: The qemu implementation in libvirt Xen allowed local guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host disk consumption) by writing to stdout or stderr (bsc#981264).

- CVE-2016-3158: The xrstor function did not properly handle writes to the hardware FSW.ES bit when running on AMD64 processors, which allowed local guest OS users to obtain sensitive register content information from another guest by leveraging pending exception and mask bits (bsc#973188).

- CVE-2016-4441: The get_cmd function in the 53C9X Fast SCSI Controller (FSC) support did not properly check DMA length, which allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write and QEMU process crash) via unspecified vectors, involving an SCSI command (bsc#980724)

- CVE-2016-4453: The vmsvga_fifo_run function allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and QEMU process crash) via a VGA command (bsc#982225)

- CVE-2016-4454: The vmsvga_fifo_read_raw function allowed local guest OS administrators to obtain sensitive host memory information or cause a denial of service (QEMU process crash) by changing FIFO registers and issuing a VGA command, which triggered an out-of-bounds read (bsc#982224)

- CVE-2016-4480: The guest_walk_tables function in arch/x86/mm/guest_walk.c in Xen did not properly handle the Page Size (PS) page table entry bit at the L4 and L3 page table levels, which might have allowed local guest OS users to gain privileges via a crafted mapping of memory (bsc#978295).

- CVE-2016-4952: Out-of-bounds access issue in pvsci_ring_init_msg/data routines (bsc#981276)

- CVE-2016-4962: The libxl device-handling allowed local OS guest administrators to cause a denial of service (resource consumption or management facility confusion) or gain host OS privileges by manipulating information in guest controlled areas of xenstore (bsc#979620)

- CVE-2016-4963: The libxl device-handling allowed local guest OS users with access to the driver domain to cause a denial of service (management tool confusion) by manipulating information in the backend directories in xenstore (bsc#979670)

- CVE-2016-5105: Stack information leakage while reading configuration (bsc#982024)

- CVE-2016-5106: Out-of-bounds write while setting controller properties (bsc#982025)

- CVE-2016-5107: Out-of-bounds read in megasas_lookup_frame() function (bsc#982026)

- CVE-2016-5126: Heap-based buffer overflow in the iscsi_aio_ioctl function allowed local guest OS users to cause a denial of service (QEMU process crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted iSCSI asynchronous I/O ioctl call (bsc#982286)

- CVE-2016-5238: The get_cmd function in hw/scsi/esp.c might have allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write and QEMU process crash) via vectors related to reading from the information transfer buffer in non-DMA mode (bsc#982960)

- CVE-2016-5337: The megasas_ctrl_get_info function allowed local guest OS administrators to obtain sensitive host memory information via vectors related to reading device control information (bsc#983973)

- CVE-2016-5338: The (1) esp_reg_read and (2) esp_reg_write functions allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (QEMU process crash) or execute arbitrary code on the host via vectors related to the information transfer buffer (bsc#983984)
