IMPACT ====== A buggy or malicious guest can crash the host. VULNERABLE SYSTEMS ================== Both 32- and 64-bit ARM systems are vulnerable from Xen 4.4 onward. x86 systems are not vulnerable. MITIGATION ========== None. NOTE REGARDING LACK OF EMBARGO ============================== This bug was publicly reported on xen-devel, before it was appreciated that there was a security problem. CREDITS ======= The initial bug was discovered by Thomas Leonard and the security aspect was diagnosed by Julien Grall. RESOLUTION ========== Applying the appropriate attached patch resolves this issue. xsa94.patch xen-unstable, Xen 4.4.x $ sha256sum xsa94*.patch ad0f20577400756a1786daeafef86fa870727ec35b48f71f565e4a30dcbda58d xsa94.patch $ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.12 (GNU/Linux) iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJTV7qTAAoJEIP+FMlX6CvZ08EH/3pIhD1lCXex3pbvo0BFIc2y +XqJmLQ8QVeuk1Q9etEVbJxC8YvbmunefyCyfXIYQpL5jWqJdOAGzSktLOuaGrrM ENG6kFyiC6pxLouJb+BAm3qOfe3vVCdkWh9ouWQGC/3FqbSM+2QGI0vUyxtfmmga IDeQ+CjyWVVhmR7Tb76Gc/pMLnrfD1HTZSgTe8NacqbnZuXzPMrxkKw8BleK/boH L5r/0Y/GqqOe5LRqCOZt8U7jlcfwAs+rqUI0UDz70YvokcBH7RwaRiolZxicLdjP 4lFJH8q9d45EA9JI+Xifv2QZ9tJMRNhRtTQpqIS8swAROOM/SblpPUPlOiPvyaE= =RGUg -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- [ CONTENT OF TYPE application/octet-stream SKIPPED ]
