Description

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

  • CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5754: Prevent information leaks via side effects of speculative execution, aka 'Spectre' and 'Meltdown' attacks (bsc#1074562, bsc#1068032)

  • CVE-2017-15595: x86 PV guest OS users were able to cause a DoS (unbounded recursion, stack consumption, and hypervisor crash) or possibly gain privileges via crafted page-table stacking (bsc#1061081)

  • CVE-2017-17566: Prevent PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges in shadow mode by mapping a certain auxiliary page (bsc#1070158).

  • CVE-2017-17563: Prevent guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges by leveraging an incorrect mask for reference-count overflow checking in shadow mode (bsc#1070159).

  • CVE-2017-17564: Prevent guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges by leveraging incorrect error handling for reference counting in shadow mode (bsc#1070160).

  • CVE-2017-17565: Prevent PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) if shadow mode and log-dirty mode are in place, because of an incorrect assertion related to M2P (bsc#1070163).

  • CVE-2018-5683: The vga_draw_text function allowed local OS guest privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and QEMU process crash) by leveraging improper memory address validation (bsc#1076116).

  • CVE-2017-18030: The cirrus_invalidate_region function allowed local OS guest privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access and QEMU process crash) via vectors related to negative pitch (bsc#1076180).

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.
