|ID: oval:org.secpod.oval:def:21815||Date: (C)2014-12-01 (M)2018-05-10|
|Class: VULNERABILITY||Family: unix|
The host is installed with Linux kernel through 3.17.2 and is prone to a denial of service vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, which miscalculates the number of pages during the handling of a mapping failure. Successful exploitation allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS page unpinning) or possibly have unspecified other impact.
