Linux Linux Kernel 4.5.5 Denial Of Service Overflow Obtain Information Vulnerability
8 Aug. 2016
Linux Linux Kernel is prone to a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability.This allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (DoS) condition due to high consumption of system resources via certain vulnerable vectors. Linux Linux Kernel is prone to a overflow vulnerability.This allows a remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted packets and cause a denial of service (memory corruption) Linux Linux Kernel is prone to a gain information vulnerability.This allows local or remote attackers to gain privileges via a malicious program in the affected application.
The IPT_SO_SET_REPLACE setsockopt implementation in the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel before 4.6 allows local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) or possibly obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory by leveraging in-container root access to provide a crafted offset value that leads to crossing a ruleset blob boundary.
