CVE-2013-0216

Published: 17 February 2013

The Xen netback functionality in the Linux kernel before 3.7.8 allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (loop) by triggering ring pointer corruption.

From the Ubuntu security team

A failure to validate input was discovered in the Linux kernel's Xen netback (network backend) driver. A user in a guest OS may exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service to the guest OS and other guest domains.
