Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
oxenstored in Xen 4.1.x, Xen 4.2.x, and xen-unstable does not properly consider the state of the Xenstore ring during read operations, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (daemon crash and host-control outage, or memory consumption) or obtain sensitive control-plane data by leveraging guest administrative access.
CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls
CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
