CVE-2018-12207

Priority
Description
Improper invalidation for page table updates by a virtual guest operating
system for multiple Intel(R) Processors may allow an authenticated user to
potentially enable denial of service of the host system via local access.
Ubuntu-Description
Deepak Gupta discovered that on certain Intel processors, the Linux kernel
did not properly perform invalidation on page table updates by virtual
guest operating systems. A local attacker in a guest VM could use this to
cause a denial of service (host system crash).
Notes
tyhicksThis issue only affects processors manufactured by Intel that support
Extended Page Tables (EPT)
