Description

This update for xen fixes several issues.

This feature was added :

Added support for qemu monitor command

These security issues were fixed: CVE-2018-3639: Prevent attackers with local user access from extracting information via a side-channel analysis, aka Speculative Store Bypass (SSB), Variant 4 (bsc#1092631).

CVE-2017-5753,CVE-2017-5715,CVE-2017-5754: Improved Spectre v2 mitigations (bsc#1074562).

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.
