An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.10.x allowing x86 HVM guest OS users to cause a denial of service (unexpectedly high interrupt number, array overrun, and hypervisor crash) or possibly gain hypervisor privileges by setting up an HPET timer to deliver interrupts in IO-APIC mode, aka vHPET interrupt injection.

An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.10.x allowing x86 HVM guest OS users (in certain configurations) to read arbitrary dom0 files via QMP live insertion of a CDROM, in conjunction with specifying the target file as the backing file of a snapshot.
4 CVE-2018-10471 787 DoS 2018-04-27 2018-06-07
4.9

An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.10.x allowing x86 PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds zero write and hypervisor crash) via unexpected INT 80 processing, because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2017-5754.
5 CVE-2018-8897 264 2018-05-08 2018-06-20
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
A statement in the System Programming Guide of the Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer's Manual (SDM) was mishandled in the development of some or all operating-system kernels, resulting in unexpected behavior for #DB exceptions that are deferred by MOV SS or POP SS, as demonstrated by (for example) privilege escalation in Windows, macOS, some Xen configurations, or FreeBSD, or a Linux kernel crash. The MOV to SS and POP SS instructions inhibit interrupts (including NMIs), data breakpoints, and single step trap exceptions until the instruction boundary following the next instruction (SDM Vol. 3A; section 6.8.3). (The inhibited data breakpoints are those on memory accessed by the MOV to SS or POP to SS instruction itself.) Note that debug exceptions are not inhibited by the interrupt enable (EFLAGS.IF) system flag (SDM Vol. 3A; section 2.3). If the instruction following the MOV to SS or POP to SS instruction is an instruction like SYSCALL, SYSENTER, INT 3, etc. that transfers control to the operating system at CPL < 3, the debug exception is delivered after the transfer to CPL < 3 is complete. OS kernels may not expect this order of events and may therefore experience unexpected behavior when it occurs.

An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.9.x on the ARM platform allowing guest OS users to obtain sensitive information from DRAM after a reboot, because disjoint blocks, and physical addresses that do not start at zero, are mishandled.

16 CVE-2017-15597 264 DoS Mem. Corr. +Info 2017-10-30 2017-11-29
9.0
None Remote Low Single system Complete Complete Complete
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.9.x. Grant copying code made an implication that any grant pin would be accompanied by a suitable page reference. Other portions of code, however, did not match up with that assumption. When such a grant copy operation is being done on a grant of a dying domain, the assumption turns out wrong. A malicious guest administrator can cause hypervisor memory corruption, most likely resulting in host crash and a Denial of Service. Privilege escalation and information leaks cannot be ruled out.
17 CVE-2017-15596 400 DoS 2017-10-18 2017-11-03

An issue was discovered in Xen 4.5.x through 4.9.x allowing attackers (who control a stub domain kernel or tool stack) to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) because of a missing comparison (of range start to range end) within the DMOP map/unmap implementation.

24 CVE-2017-15589 200 +Info 2017-10-18 2018-02-03
2.1
None Local Low Not required Partial None None
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.9.x allowing x86 HVM guest OS users to obtain sensitive information from the host OS (or an arbitrary guest OS) because intercepted I/O operations can cause a write of data from uninitialized hypervisor stack memory.
25 CVE-2017-15588 362 Exec Code 2017-10-18 2018-02-03

26 CVE-2017-14431 119 DoS Overflow 2017-09-13 2017-09-26
4.9
None Local Low Not required None None Complete
Memory leak in Xen 3.3 through 4.8.x allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (ARM or x86 AMD host OS memory consumption) by continually rebooting, because certain cleanup is skipped if no pass-through device was ever assigned, aka XSA-207.
27 CVE-2017-14319 264 2017-09-12 2017-11-29
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
A grant unmapping issue was discovered in Xen through 4.9.x. When removing or replacing a grant mapping, the x86 PV specific path needs to make sure page table entries remain in sync with other accounting done. Although the identity of the page frame was validated correctly, neither the presence of the mapping nor page writability were taken into account.
28 CVE-2017-14318 476 2017-09-12 2017-11-29
4.9
None Local Low Not required None None Complete
An issue was discovered in Xen 4.5.x through 4.9.x. The function `__gnttab_cache_flush` handles GNTTABOP_cache_flush grant table operations. It checks to see if the calling domain is the owner of the page that is to be operated on. If it is not, the owner's grant table is checked to see if a grant mapping to the calling domain exists for the page in question. However, the function does not check to see if the owning domain actually has a grant table or not. Some special domains, such as `DOMID_XEN`, `DOMID_IO` and `DOMID_COW` are created without grant tables. Hence, if __gnttab_cache_flush operates on a page owned by these special domains, it will attempt to dereference a NULL pointer in the domain struct.
29 CVE-2017-14317 362 2017-09-12 2017-11-29
4.7
None Local Medium Not required None None Complete
A domain cleanup issue was discovered in the C xenstore daemon (aka cxenstored) in Xen through 4.9.x. When shutting down a VM with a stubdomain, a race in cxenstored may cause a double-free. The xenstored daemon may crash, resulting in a DoS of any parts of the system relying on it (including domain creation / destruction, ballooning, device changes, etc.).
30 CVE-2017-14316 125 2017-09-12 2017-11-29
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
A parameter verification issue was discovered in Xen through 4.9.x. The function `alloc_heap_pages` allows callers to specify the first NUMA node that should be used for allocations through the `memflags` parameter; the node is extracted using the `MEMF_get_node` macro. While the function checks to see if the special constant `NUMA_NO_NODE` is specified, it otherwise does not handle the case where `node >= MAX_NUMNODES`. This allows an out-of-bounds access to an internal array.
31 CVE-2017-12855 200 +Info 2017-08-15 2017-11-14
2.1
None Local Low Not required Partial None None
Xen maintains the _GTF_{read,writ}ing bits as appropriate, to inform the guest that a grant is in use. A guest is expected not to modify the grant details while it is in use, whereas the guest is free to modify/reuse the grant entry when it is not in use. Under some circumstances, Xen will clear the status bits too early, incorrectly informing the guest that the grant is no longer in use. A guest may prematurely believe that a granted frame is safely private again, and reuse it in a way which contains sensitive information, while the domain on the far end of the grant is still using the grant. Xen 4.9, 4.8, 4.7, 4.6, and 4.5 are affected.
