New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.


A flaw was found in how the Linux kernel's KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) subsystem handled MSI (Message Signaled Interrupts). A local unprivileged user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service or potentially elevate privileges.
