Description

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

  • CVE-2016-7092: The get_page_from_l3e function in arch/x86/mm.c in Xen allowed local 32-bit PV guest OS administrators to gain host OS privileges via vectors related to L3 recursive pagetables (bsc#995785)

  • CVE-2016-7093: Xen allowed local HVM guest OS administrators to overwrite hypervisor memory and consequently gain host OS privileges by leveraging mishandling of instruction pointer truncation during emulation (bsc#995789)

  • CVE-2016-7094: Buffer overflow in Xen allowed local x86 HVM guest OS administrators on guests running with shadow paging to cause a denial of service via a pagetable update (bsc#995792)

  • CVE-2016-7154: Use-after-free vulnerability in the FIFO event channel code in Xen allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (host crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code or obtain sensitive information via an invalid guest frame number (bsc#997731)

  • CVE-2016-6836: VMWARE VMXNET3 NIC device allowed privileged user inside the guest to leak information. It occured while processing transmit(tx) queue, when it reaches the end of packet (bsc#994761)

  • CVE-2016-6888: A integer overflow int the VMWARE VMXNET3 NIC device support, during the initialisation of new packets in the device, could have allowed a privileged user inside guest to crash the Qemu instance resulting in DoS (bsc#994772)

  • CVE-2016-6833: A use-after-free issue in the VMWARE VMXNET3 NIC device support allowed privileged user inside guest to crash the Qemu instance resulting in DoS (bsc#994775)

  • CVE-2016-6835: Buffer overflow in the VMWARE VMXNET3 NIC device support, causing an OOB read access (bsc#994625)

  • CVE-2016-6834: A infinite loop during packet fragmentation in the VMWARE VMXNET3 NIC device support allowed privileged user inside guest to crash the Qemu instance resulting in DoS (bsc#994421)

  • CVE-2016-6258: The PV pagetable code in arch/x86/mm.c in Xen allowed local 32-bit PV guest OS administrators to gain host OS privileges by leveraging fast-paths for updating pagetable entries (bsc#988675)

The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
