The host is installed with kernel on RHEL 5, 6, or 7 and is prone to a buffer overflow vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, which fails to properly handle kernel's virtio-net handled fragmented packets. Successful exploitation could allow attackers to send crafted packets to a target system.
