Doc Text:
A flaw was found where an attacker may be able to have an uncontrolled read to kernel-memory from within a vm guest. A race condition between connect() and close() function may allow an attacker using the AF_VSOCK protocol to gather a 4 byte information leak or possibly impersonate AF_VSOCK messages destined to other clients or leak kernel memory.

Description Laura Pardo 2018-08-21 21:53:33 UTC
A flaw was found in Linux Kernel in which an attacker may be able to have an uncontrolled read to kernel-memory from within a vm guest.  A race condition between connect() and close() function may allow an attacker using the AF_VSOCK protocol to gather a 4 byte information leak or possibly intercept or corrupt AF_VSOCK messages destined to other clients.
