CVE-2021-47217 Detail


In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: x86/hyperv: Fix NULL deref in set_hv_tscchange_cb() if Hyper-V setup fails Check for a valid hv_vp_index array prior to derefencing hv_vp_index when setting Hyper-V's TSC change callback. If Hyper-V setup failed in hyperv_init(), the kernel will still report that it's running under Hyper-V, but will have silently disabled nearly all functionality.
