CVE-2018-1118

Priority
Description
Linux kernel vhost since version 4.8 does not properly initialize memory in
messages passed between virtual guests and the host operating system in the
vhost/vhost.c:vhost_new_msg() function. This can allow local privileged
users to read some kernel memory contents when reading from the
/dev/vhost-net device file.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that the VirtIO subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly initialize memory in some situations. A local attacker could use
this to possibly expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
