FreeBSD : xen-tools -- oob access in cirrus bitblt copy (a73aba9a-effe-11e6-ae1b-002590263bf5)

High Nessus Plugin ID 97109


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


The Xen Project reports :

When doing bitblt copy backwards, qemu should negate the blit width.
This avoids an oob access before the start of video memory.

A malicious guest administrator can cause an out of bounds memory access, possibly leading to information disclosure or privilege escalation.


Update the affected package.
