Xen 'drivers/xen/blkback/blkback.c' Local Denial Of Service Vulnerability

Xen is prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability because the application fails to properly validate user-supplied input.

An attacker with access to a guest operating system can exploit this issue to trigger excessive CPU consumption on the host operating system via an endless loop, effectively denying service to legitimate users.
