Description

According to its self-reported version number, the Xen hypervisor installed on the remote host is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability. Only x86 systems with the fsgsbase CPU feature 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.
