A stack overflow flaw via an infinite loop condition issue was found in the KVM hypervisor of the Linux kernel. This flaw occurs while processing interrupts because the IRQ state is erroneously set. This flaw allows a guest user to crash the host kernel, resulting in a denial of service. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability.

Mitigation

Disabling APICV by setting the kvm_intel.enable_apicv=0 parameter helps to avoid this situation.
