Xen was updated to fix two security issues and a bug:

   * CVE-2015-3456: A buffer overflow in the floppy drive emulation,
     which could be used to carry out denial of service attacks or
     potential code execution against the host. This vulnerability is
     also known as VENOM.
   * CVE-2015-3340: Xen did not initialize certain fields, which allowed
     certain remote service domains to obtain sensitive information from
     memory via a (1) XEN_DOMCTL_gettscinfo or (2)
     XEN_SYSCTL_getdomaininfolist request.
   * An exception in setCPUAffinity when restoring guests. (bsc#910441)
