Status Candidate

Overview

XENMEM_populate_physmap in Xen 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2, and Citrix XenServer 6.0.2 and earlier, when translating paging mode is not used, allows local PV OS guest kernels to cause a denial of service (BUG triggered and host crash) via invalid flags such as MEMF_populate_on_demand.

Technical Information On Vulnerabilities Of Hypercall Handlers
Posted Sep 23, 2014
Authored by Samuel Kounev, Bryan D. Payne, Aleksandar Milenkoski, Nuno Antunes, Marco Vieira | Site research.spec.org

Modern virtualized service infrastructures expose attack vectors that enable attacks of high severity, such as attacks targeting hypervisors. A malicious user of a guest VM (virtual machine) may execute an attack against the underlying hypervisor via hypercalls, which are software traps from a kernel of a fully or partially paravirtualized guest VM to the hypervisor. The exploitation of a vulnerability of a hypercall handler may have severe consequences such as altering hypervisor's memory, which may result in the execution of malicious code with hypervisor privilege. Despite the importance of vulnerabilities of hypercall handlers, there is not much publicly available information on them. This significantly hinders advances towards securing hypercall interfaces. In this work, the researchers provide in-depth technical information on publicly disclosed vulnerabilities of hypercall handlers. Our vulnerability analysis is based on reverse engineering the released patches fixing the considered vulnerabilities. For each analyzed vulnerability, they provide background information essential for understanding the vulnerability, and information on the vulnerable hypercall handler and the error causing the vulnerability. The researchers also show how the vulnerability can be triggered and discuss the state of the targeted hypervisor after the vulnerability has been triggered.
