Description Petr Matousek 2010-03-04 16:21:46 UTC
Gleb Napatov found a bug in KVM that can be used to crash the host on Intel
machines. If emulator is tricked into emulating mov to/from DR instruction it
causes NULL pointer dereference on VMX since kvm_x86_ops->(set|get)_dr are not
initialized. Recently this is not exploitable from guest userspace, but
malicious guest kernel can trigger it easily.
