This update for xen to version 4.11.4 fixes the following issues :

CVE-2020-0543: Fixed a side channel attack against special registers which could have resulted in leaking of read values to cores other than the one which called it. This attack is known as Special Register Buffer Data Sampling (SRBDS) or ‘CrossTalk’ (bsc#1172205).

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.
