Debian Bug     : 

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Xen hypervisor. The 
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following 
problems:

CVE-2012-4544

    Insufficient validation of kernel or ramdisk sizes in the Xen PV 
    domain builder could result in denial of service.

CVE-2012-5511

    Several HVM control operations performed insufficient validation of
    input, which could result in denial of service through resource
    exhaustion.

CVE-2012-5634

    Incorrect interrupt handling when using VT-d hardware could result
    in denial of service.

CVE-2013-0153

    Insufficient restriction of interrupt access could result in denial
    of service.


For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.0.1-5.7.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.1.4-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.1.4-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your xen packages.
