CVE-2013-6368

Priority
Description
The KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.12.5 allows local users to
gain privileges or cause a denial of service (system crash) via a VAPIC
synchronization operation involving a page-end address.
Ubuntu-Description
Andrew Honig reported an error in the Linux Kernel's Kernel Virtual Machine
(KVM) VAPIC synchronization operation. A local user could exploit this flaw
to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (system crash).
Notes
jdstrandper upstream, not guest triggerable because write must be done in
firmware which is before the guest starts. Also only affects certain
processors
per kernel team, too intrusive to backport
