    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the Xen virtual machine
    hypervisor. 
    
    CVE-2011-1166
    
      A 64-bit guest can get one of its vCPU'ss into non-kernel
      mode without first providing a valid non-kernel pagetable,
      thereby locking up the host system.
    
    CVE-2011-1583, CVE-2011-3262
    
      Local users can cause a denial of service and possibly execute
      arbitrary code via a crafted paravirtualised guest kernel image.
    
    CVE-2011-1898
    
      When using PCI passthrough on Intel VT-d chipsets that do not
      have interrupt remapping, guest OS can users to gain host OS
      privileges by writing to the interrupt injection registers.
    
    The oldstable distribution (lenny) contains a different version of Xen
    not affected by these problems.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.0.1-4.
    
    For the testing (wheezy) and unstable distribution (sid), this problem
    has been fixed in version 4.1.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xen packages.
