Mandrake 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).

 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.
