Description Laura Pardo 2019-06-14 20:55:31 UTC
An attacker in a domU could perform a denial of service attack on Xen by accessing a memory region shared with the hypervisor, while Xen is performing an atomic operation on the same region. As a result Xen could end up looping boundlessly. Systems running all versions of Xen are affected. x86 processors are not affected. Arm processors are vulnerable, both Armv7 and Armv8.
