    Several denial-of-service vulnerabilities have been discovered in Xen,
    the popular virtualization software. The Common Vulnerabilities and 
    Exposures project identifies the following issues:
    
    CVE-2012-3432
    
     Guest mode unprivileged code, which has been granted the privilege to 
     access MMIO regions, may leverage that access to crash the whole guest.
     Since this be used to crash a client from within, this vulnerability is
     consider with low impact.
    
    CVE-2012-3433
    
     A guest kernel can cause the host to become unresponsive for a period
     of time, potentially leading to a DoS. Since an attacker with full
     control in the guest can impact on the host, this vulnerability is
     consider with high impact.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.0.1-5.3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.1.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xen packages.
