Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2017-12-18 13:49:06 UTC
CVE-2017-17566 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2017-17566):
  An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.9.x allowing PV guest OS users to
  cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges in
  shadow mode by mapping a certain auxiliary page.

CVE-2017-17565 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2017-17565):
  An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.9.x allowing PV guest OS users to
  cause a denial of service (host OS crash) if shadow mode and log-dirty mode
  are in place, because of an incorrect assertion related to M2P.

CVE-2017-17564 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2017-17564):
  An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.9.x allowing guest OS users to
  cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges by
  leveraging incorrect error handling for reference counting in shadow mode.

CVE-2017-17563 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2017-17563):
  An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.9.x allowing guest OS users to
  cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges by
  leveraging an incorrect mask for reference-count overflow checking in shadow
  mode.

@Maintainers please confirm if we are affected by those CVEs.

Thank you
Comment 2 Yixun Lan archtester gentoo-dev 2017-12-31 14:18:40 UTC
this is fixed at app-emulation/xen-4.9.1-r1

Upstream's x86 doesn't mean Gentoo's x86.
Comment 4 Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev Security 2018-01-11 19:10:52 UTC
@ Maintainer(s): Looks like we need to move to 4.9.x (XSA-248... also affectx 4.8.x). Can you confirm that we will move to 4.9.x? Is =app-emulation/xen-4.9.1-r1 ready for stabilization and will we cleanup <app-emulation/xen-4.9.1-r1 after that?

Yes, Yixun plans to do so, but I think he wanted to get Xen 4.10 into portage first for testing. Given that we have multiple unsolved CVEs, I suppose we can call stabilization and add 4.10 later on.

Xen 4.9.1-r1 looks fine, fixes some issues with ovmf and seems to work nice for us in production.
Comment 6 Yixun Lan archtester gentoo-dev 2018-01-13 14:29:12 UTC
Yes, let's move forward to 4.9 (since we haven't done the security bump for these versions <4.9)


Arches, please test and mark stable:
=app-emulation/xen-4.9.1-r1
Target keyword only: "amd64" 
        
=app-emulation/xen-pvgrub-4.9.1
=app-emulation/xen-tools-4.9.1-r1
Target keywords: "amd64 x86"
Comment 7 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2018-01-14 15:31:14 UTC

Seems like we missed xen-pvgrub in the package list so it's not stabilized yet.
