|Title:||Oracle VirtualBox Guest-to-Host Escape E1000 Privilege Escalation Vulnerability (Linux)|
|Summary:||The host is installed with Oracle VirtualBox; and is prone to privilege escalation vulnerability.|
The host is installed with Oracle VirtualBox
and is prone to privilege escalation vulnerability.
The flaw exists in the Intel PRO/1000 MT

Successful exploitation will allow an attacker
with root/administrator privileges in a guest to escape to a host ring3. Then the
attacker can use existing techniques to escalate privileges to ring 0 via
Oracle VirtualBox versions 5.2.20 and
before on Linux.
