Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2013-08-29 01:16:09 UTC
CVE-2013-1964 (
  Xen 4.0.x and 4.1.x incorrectly releases a grant reference when releasing a
  non-v1, non-transitive grant, which allows local guest administrators to
  cause a denial of service (host crash), obtain sensitive information, or
  possible have other impacts via unspecified vectors.

This one never made it into a bug, but has been fixed with other stabilizations. Will be resolved with next Xen GLSA release.
