CVE-2018-6974 8.8 - High - October 16, 2018

VMware ESXi (6.7 before ESXi670-201810101-SG, 6.5 before ESXi650-201808401-BG, and 6.0 before ESXi600-201808401-BG), Workstation (14.x before 14.1.3) and Fusion (10.x before 10.1.3) contain an out-of-bounds read vulnerability in SVGA device. This issue may allow a guest to execute code on the host.

CVE-2018-6977 6.5 - Medium - October 09, 2018

VMware ESXi (6.7, 6.5, 6.0), Workstation (15.x and 14.x) and Fusion (11.x and 10.x) contain a denial-of-service vulnerability due to an infinite loop in a 3D-rendering shader. Successfully exploiting this issue may allow an attacker with normal user privileges in the guest to make the VM unresponsive, and in some cases, possibly result other VMs on the host or the host itself becoming unresponsive.

Infinite Loop

CVE-2017-5753 5.6 - Medium - January 04, 2018

Systems with microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and branch prediction may allow unauthorized disclosure of information to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis.

Side Channel Attack

In the add_match function in libbb/lineedit.c in BusyBox through 1.27.2

CVE-2017-16544 8.8 - High - November 20, 2017

In the add_match function in libbb/lineedit.c in BusyBox through 1.27.2, the tab autocomplete feature of the shell, used to get a list of filenames in a directory, does not sanitize filenames and results in executing any escape sequence in the terminal. This could potentially result in code execution, arbitrary file writes, or other attacks.

Code Injection

The igb_receive_skb function in drivers/net/igb/igb_main.c in the Intel Gigabit Ethernet (aka igb) subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.34, when Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) and promiscuous mode are enabled but no VLANs are registered

CVE-2010-4263 - January 18, 2011

The igb_receive_skb function in drivers/net/igb/igb_main.c in the Intel Gigabit Ethernet (aka igb) subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.34, when Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) and promiscuous mode are enabled but no VLANs are registered, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) and possibly have unspecified other impact via a VLAN tagged frame.
