Microsoft fixes Hyper-V bug in Windows


Recommended Posts



"While it's not critical, this Hyper-V bug can cause denial-of-service issues in guest VMs.


The issue exists on the hardware level in certain chip sets, but users who run Hyper-V on Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Professional and Enterprise versions of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, and all x64-based versions of Windows 10 except Home edition were at risk, Microsoft said in its advisory (3108638). Customers running Windows Server Technical Preview 3 are also affected. Microsoft rated the two vulnerabilities (CVE-2015-5307 and CVE-2015-8104) as Important and released the patch addressing them alongside the regular update cycle this week."
