Link to the paper published on USENIX Security 2015: https://www.usenix.org/system/files/conference/usenixsecurity15/sec15-paper-smolyar.pdf Intel published a security advisory INTEL-SA-00046 on that issue: https://security-center.intel.com/advisory.aspx?intelid=INTEL-SA-00046&languageid=en-fr Could you please allocate a CVE id for this? Below are fixes from major SRIOV vendors. Intel published fixed drivers on kernel.org: ixgbe: add flow control ethertype to the anti-spoofing filter commit f079fa005aae08ee0e1bc32699874ff4f02e11c1 i40e/i40evf: Add a workaround to drop all flow control frames commit e7358f54a3954df16d4f87e3cad35063f1c17de5 Qlogic(ex Broadcom controllers) recently pushed the fix upstream. There is patch which pushed the new FW: http://lists.openwall.net/netdev/2015/11/19/73 And another which changed the driver to employ it: https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/547321/ This is the header of the driver patch: Commit 46e8a249423ff "bnx2x: Add FW 22.214.171.124" added said .bin FW to linux-firmware; This patch incorporates the FW in the bnx2x driver. - Prevent VFs from sending MAC control frames; FW would treat a VF sending such a packet as malicious and block any further communication done by the VF. Mellanox also provided fix in firmware for ConnectX-3 devices. Fixed firmware version 2.35.5000 Thanks, Igor Smolyar
