||An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel as used by Xen. A malicious or buggy networking frontend driver may be able to crash the corresponding backend driver, potentially affecting the entire domain running the backend driver. In a typical (non-disaggregated) system that is a host-wide denial of service (DoS). Linux versions from at least 2.6.39 onwards are vulnerable, when run in PV mode. Linux run in HVM / PVH modes is not vulnerable.
||An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel through 5.11.3, as used with Xen PV. A certain part of the netback driver lacks necessary treatment of errors such as failed memory allocations (as a result of changes to the handling of grant mapping errors). A host OS denial of service may occur during misbehavior of a networking frontend driver. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2021-26931.
