    Description:
    
       This update for xen fixes the following issues:
    
       - CVE-2018-12207: Untrusted virtual machines on Intel CPUs could exploit a
         race condition in the Instruction Fetch Unit of the Intel CPU to cause a
         Machine Exception during Page Size Change, causing the CPU core to be
         non-functional. (bsc#1155945)
       - CVE-2019-11135: Aborting an asynchronous TSX operation on Intel CPUs
         with Transactional Memory support could be used to facilitate
         sidechannel information leaks out of microarchitectural buffers, similar
         to the previously described "Microarchitectural Data Sampling" attack.
         (bsc#1152497).
       - CVE-2019-18425: 32-bit PV guest user mode could elevate its privileges
         to that
         of the guest kernel. (bsc#1154456).
       - CVE-2019-18421: A malicious PV guest administrator may have been able to
         escalate their privilege to that of the host. (bsc#1154458).
       - CVE-2019-18420: Malicious x86 PV guests may have caused a hypervisor
         crash, resulting in a Denial of Service (Dos). (bsc#1154448)
