Description Petr Matousek 2013-11-21 14:51:57 UTC
Privileged guest user could trigger BUG_ON() in apic_cluster_id() when writing certain values to ICR register to request an IPI, while in x2apic mode.

A privileged guest user could use this flaw to crash the host.

Acknowledgements:

Red Hat would like to thank Lars Bull of Google for reporting this issue.

Comment 1 Petr Matousek 2013-11-21 14:52:57 UTC
Statement:

Not vulnerable.

This issue did not affect the versions of kvm packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This issue did not affect the versions of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise 6.

This issue did not affect the versions of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 as they did not provide support for the KVM subsystem.
