Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains one low risk vulnerability.

1) Buffer overflow

EUVDB-ID: #VU22712

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2018-12207

CWE-ID: CWE-119 - Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to perform denial of service (DoS) attack.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error in the mechanism responsible for error handling on some Intel platforms. A local user of a guest operating system can use a specially crafted application to trigger memory corruption and cause the host system to stop responding.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may result in a denial of service (DoS) attack.
