Published: 2017-10-01   Modified: 2017-10-06

Description:
The waitid implementation in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel through 4.13.4 accesses rusage data structures in unintended cases, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information, and bypass the KASLR protection mechanism, via a crafted system call.

Vendor: Linux
Product: Linux kernel 
Version: 4.13.4;
