Xen has issued an advisory and a related patch to address an issue that allows a “buggy or malicious HVM guest to crash the host or read data relating to other guests or the hypervisor itself.”
Xen 4.1 and onward are vulnerable, only x86 systems are vulnerable. ARM systems are not vulnerable.
Applying the patch resolves this issue.
