LIN7-2060 : Security Advisory - linux - CVE-2014-8369

Created: Nov 28, 2014    Updated: Sep 8, 2018
Resolved Date: Feb 10, 2015
Found In Version: 7.0
Fix Version:
Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 7
Component/s: Kernel


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.
