An update that solves three vulnerabilities and has 9 fixes is now available.

Description:

This update for xen fixes the following issues:
Security issues fixed:

  o Fixed an issue which could allow malicious PV guests may cause a host crash
    or gain access to data pertaining to other guests.Additionally, vulnerable
    configurations are likely to be unstable even in the absence of an attack
    (bsc#1126198).
  o Fixed multiple access violations introduced by XENMEM_exchange hypercall
    which could allow a single PV guest to leak arbitrary amounts of memory,
    leading to a denial of service (bsc#1126192).
  o Fixed an issue which could allow a malicious unprivileged guest userspace
    process to escalate its privilege to that of other userspace processes in
    the same guest and potentially thereby to that of the guest operating
    system (bsc#1126201).
  o Fixed an issue which could allow a malicious or buggy x86 PV guest kernels
    can mount a Denial of Service attack affecting the whole system (bsc#
    1126196).
  o Fixed an issue which could allow an untrusted PV domain with access to a
    physical device to DMA into its own pagetables leading to privilege
    escalation (bsc#1126195).
  o CVE-2019-6778: Fixed a heap buffer overflow in tcp_emu() found in slirp
    (bsc#1123157).
  o Fixed an issue which could allow malicious 64bit PV guests to cause a host
    crash (bsc#1127400).
  o Fixed an issue which could allow malicious or buggy guests with passed
    through PCI devices to be able to escalate their privileges, crash the
    host, or access data belonging to other guests. Additionally memory leaks
    were also possible (bsc#1126140).
  o Fixed a race condition issue which could allow malicious PV guests to
    escalate their privilege to that of the hypervisor (bsc#1126141).
  o CVE-2019-9824: Fixed an information leak in SLiRP networking implementation
    which could allow a user/process to read uninitialised stack memory
    contents (bsc#1129623).
  o CVE-2018-19967: Fixed HLE constructs that allowed guests to lock up the
    host, resulting in a Denial of Service (DoS). (XSA-282) (bsc#1114988)


Other issue addressed:

  o Added Xen cmdline option "suse_vtsc_tolerance" to avoid TSC emulation for
    HVM domUs (bsc#1026236).
