RE: [Xen-users] How secure is Dom0 from DomU

It's an interesting question though... what would be the implications if
a buffer overflow was found either in the hypervisor or in a Dom0
backend device driver. Maybe a deliberately malformed disk or network
request could overflow something in Dom0 and give you root access there?

Can anyone in the know comment on this?
