Microsoft Hyper-V: Multiple Vulnerabilities in vmswitch.sys
Multiple bugs are present in WPP code when handling set OID requests, one of them allowing to dereference (read access) an attacker controlled pointer, and the rest causing out of bounds read accesses
Microsoft Hyper-V Type Confusion leading to Arbitrary Memory Dereference
A bug present in the Hyper-V (hvix64) hash-table implementation allows to dereference memory near (or belonging to) the hash-table struct object.
Microsoft Hyper-V NULL Pointer Dereference Denial of Service
A bug present in Hyper-V's (hvix64) emulation handler for VMLAUNCH/VMRESUME allows a malicious L2 hypervisor to trigger a NULL pointer dereference in the L1 hypervisor.
Microsoft Hyper-V Stack Overflow Denial of Service
A bug present in the hvix64 module (hypervisor) causes infinite recursion, leading to a stack overflow.

Meltdown Reloaded: Breaking Windows KASLR by Leaking KVA Shadow Mappings
This blogpost explains how Meltdown can still be used to leak some specific kernel data and break Windows KASLR in the latest Windows versions, including "Windows 10" 20H1, despite the KVA Shadow mechanism introduced to mitigate Meltdown.
