[PATCH 4.4 092/143] KVM: x86: work around leak of uninitialized stack contents (CVE-2019-7222)
From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Feb 18 2019 - 09:05:06 EST
4.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
From: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@xxxxxxxxxx>
commit 353c0956a618a07ba4bbe7ad00ff29fe70e8412a upstream.
Emulation of certain instructions (VMXON, VMCLEAR, VMPTRLD, VMWRITE with
memory operand, INVEPT, INVVPID) can incorrectly inject a page fault
when passed an operand that points to an MMIO address. The page fault
will use uninitialized kernel stack memory as the CR2 and error code.
The right behavior would be to abort the VM with a KVM_EXIT_INTERNAL_ERROR
exit to userspace; however, it is not an easy fix, so for now just
ensure that the error code and CR2 are zero.
Embargoed until Feb 7th 2019.
