Hello list,


In regards to these recent security advisories like XSA-208/209 how can we positively identify Cirrus vs standard VGA virtual device on Windows virtual servers?


I have Xen servers built via SolusVM install script with Windows 2008/12 VPS only.  There is no config statement in our VPS config files by default for video card type.  Is there a device or hardware  identifier in Windows device manager display adapter details I can verify Stvga versus Cirrus definitively?  Otherwise the description just says "Microsoft basic display adapter"
