Denial of service vulnerability in arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in linux kernel

Deprecated
ID: oval:org.secpod.oval:def:24035Date: (C)2015-04-07   (M)2017-10-12
Class: VULNERABILITYFamily: unix




The host is installed with linux kernel before 3.18.5 and is prone to a denial of service vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, when the guest OS lacks SYSENTER MSR initialization. Successful exploitation allows guest OS users to gain guest OS privileges or cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) by triggering use of a 16-bit code segment for emulation of a SYSENTER instruction.
