CVE-2019-3900 Detail

Current Description

An infinite loop issue was found in the vhost_net kernel module in Linux Kernel up to and including v5.1-rc6, while handling incoming packets in handle_rx(). It could occur if one end sends packets faster than the other end can process them. A guest user, maybe remote one, could use this flaw to stall the vhost_net kernel thread, resulting in a DoS scenario.

NIST CVSS score
NIST: NVD
Base Score:  6.5 MEDIUM
Vector:  CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H

Nist CVSS score does not match with CNA score
CNA:  Red Hat, Inc.
Base Score:  6.3 MEDIUM
Vector:  CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:N/I:N/A:H


NVD Analysts use publicly available information to associate vector strings and CVSS scores. We also display any CVSS information provided within the CVE List from the CNA.

Note: It is possible that the NVD CVSS may not match that of the CNA. The most common reason for this is that publicly available information does not provide sufficient detail or that information simply was not available at the time the CVSS vector string was assigned.
