Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:203
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : xen
Date : November 1, 2007
Affected: 2007.0, 2007.1, Corporate 4.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Tavis Ormandy discovered a heap overflow flaw during video-to-video
copy operations in the Cirrus VGA extension code that is used in Xen.
A malicious local administrator of a guest domain could potentially
trigger this flaw and execute arbitrary code outside of the domain
(CVE-2007-1320).

Tavis Ormandy also discovered insufficient input validation leading to
a heap overflow in the NE2000 network driver in Xen. If the driver
is in use, a malicious local administrator of a guest domain could
potentially trigger this flaw and execute arbitrary code outside of
the domain (CVE-2007-1321, CVE-2007-5729, CVE-2007-5730).

Steve Kemp found that xen-utils used insecure temporary files within
the xenmon tool that could allow local users to truncate arbitrary
files (CVE-2007-3919).

Joris van Rantwijk discovered a flaw in Pygrub, which is used as a
boot loader for guest domains. A malicious local administrator of
a guest domain could create a carefully-crafted grub.conf file which
could trigger the execution of arbitrary code outside of that domain
(CVE-2007-4993).

Updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
