Priority
Medium
Description
The KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 4.13.3 allows guest OS users
to cause a denial of service (assertion failure, and hypervisor hang or
crash) via an out-of bounds guest_irq value, related to arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c
and virt/kvm/eventfd.c.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly bound guest IRQs. A local attacker in a guest VM could use this to
cause a denial of service (host system crash).
