Description Petr Matousek 2013-01-31 13:20:16 UTC
The oxenstored daemon (the ocaml version of the xenstore daemon) does
not correctly handle unusual or malicious contents in the xenstore
ring.  A malicious guest can exploit this to cause oxenstored to read
past the end of the ring (and very likely crash) or to allocate large
amounts of RAM.

A malicious guest administrator can mount a denial of service attack
affecting domain control and management functions.

Acknowledgements:

Red Hat would like to thank the Xen project for reporting this issue.
