Description

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

  • CVE-2017-12135: Unbounded recursion in grant table code allowed a malicious guest to crash the host or potentially escalate privileges/leak information (XSA-226, bsc#1051787).

  • CVE-2017-12137: Incorrectly-aligned updates to pagetables allowed for privilege escalation (XSA-227, bsc#1051788).

  • CVE-2017-12136: Race conditions with maptrack free list handling allows a malicious guest administrator to crash the host or escalate their privilege to that of the host (XSA-228, bsc#1051789).

  • CVE-2017-11434: The dhcp_decode function in slirp/bootp.c allowed local guest OS users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) via a crafted DHCP options string (bsc#1049578).

  • CVE-2017-10664: qemu-nbd did not ignore SIGPIPE, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) by disconnecting during a server-to-client reply attempt (bsc#1046637).

  • CVE-2017-12855: Premature clearing of GTF_writing / GTF_reading lead to potentially leaking sensitive information (XSA-230 bsc#1052686.

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.
