Xen Security Update for Debian 7 LTS

Package : xen
Version : 4.1.6.lts1-12
CVE ID : CVE-2016-9603 CVE-2016-9637 CVE-2017-2620

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Xen hypervisor, which
could result in privilege escalation.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your xen packages.

Please note that CVE-2017-15590 (XSA-237) will *not* be fixed in wheezy as
the patches are too intrusive to backport.
The vulnerability can be mitigated by not passing through physical devices
to untrusted guests.
