Description

According to its self-reported version number, the Xen hypervisor installed on the remote host is affected by a vulnerability allowing a guest system to potentially elevate privileges, access protected information, and perform a DoS against the host. Only AMD systems with IOMMU enabled are affected.

Note that Nessus has checked the changeset versions based on the xen.git change log. Nessus did not check guest hardware configurations or if patches were applied manually to the source code before a recompile and reinstall.
