CVE-2013-1797

Published: 18 March 2013

Use-after-free vulnerability in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel through 3.8.4 allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted application that triggers use of a guest physical address (GPA) in (1) movable or (2) removable memory during an MSR_KVM_SYSTEM_TIME kvm_set_msr_common operation.

From the Ubuntu security team

Andrew Honig discovered a use after free error in guest OS time updates in the Linux kernel's KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine). A privileged guest user could exploit this flaw to escalate privilege to the host kernel level.
