CVE-2019-3900

Priority
Description
An infinite loop issue was found in the vhost_net kernel module in Linux
Kernel up to and including v5.1-rc6, while handling incoming packets in
handle_rx(). It could occur if one end sends packets faster than the other
end can process them. A guest user, maybe remote one, could use this flaw
to stall the vhost_net kernel thread, resulting in a DoS scenario.
Ubuntu-Description
Jason Wang discovered that an infinite loop vulnerability existed in the
virtio net driver in the Linux kernel. A local attacker in a guest VM could
possibly use this to cause a denial of service in the host system.
