Linux kernel built with the Kernel-based Virtual Machine(CONFIG_KVM) support
is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds memory access issue. It could occur on x86
platform, while servicing I/O APIC requests with larger vcpu_id.
A guest user/process could use this flaw to crash the host kernel resulting in
DoS or it could potentially be used to escalate privileges on a host.
Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1400805]
This issue does not affect the versions of the kernel package as shipped with
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, 7 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.
