|CVSS SCORE||8.2, (AV:L/AC:L/PR:H/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H)|
This vulnerability allows local attackers to escalate privileges on affected installations of Linux Kernel. An attacker must first obtain the ability to execute high-privileged code on the target system in order to exploit this vulnerability.
The specific flaw exists within a fault handler. The issue results from the lack of proper validation of user-supplied data, which can result in a memory access past the end of an array. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to escalate privileges and execute arbitrary code in the context of the kernel.
Linux has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
