More information:

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Xen hypervisor:

Several security issues affecting Xenstore could result in cross domain access (denial of service, information leaks or privilege escalation) or denial of service against xenstored.

Additional vulnerabilities could result in guest-to-host denial of service.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 4.11.4+57-g41a822c392-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your xen packages.
