CVE-2014-8369

Priority
Description
The kvm_iommu_map_pages function in virt/kvm/iommu.c in the Linux kernel
through 3.17.2 miscalculates the number of pages during the handling of a
mapping failure, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service
(host OS page unpinning) or possibly have unspecified other impact by
leveraging guest OS privileges. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of
an incorrect fix for CVE-2014-3601.
Ubuntu-Description
The KVM (kernel virtual machine) subsystem of the Linux kernel
miscalculates the number of memory pages during the handling of a mapping
failure. A guest OS user could exploit this to cause a denial of service
(host OS page unpinning) or possibly have unspecified other impact by
leveraging guest OS privileges.
