    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.
    
    Software Description:
    - linux: Linux kernel
    
    Details:
    
    Paulo Bonzini discovered that the KVM hypervisor implementation in the
    Linux kernel could improperly let a nested (level 2) guest access the
    resources of a parent (level 1) guest in certain situations. An attacker
    could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2020-2732)
    
    Update instructions:

    versions:
