Vulnerability CVE-2017-15126


Published: 2018-01-14

Description:
A use-after-free flaw was found in fs/userfaultfd.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13.6. The issue is related to the handling of fork failure when dealing with event messages. Failure to fork correctly can lead to a situation where a fork event will be removed from an already freed list of events with userfaultfd_ctx_put().

Type:

CWE-416

(Use After Free)

Vendor: Linux
Product: Linux kernel 
Version: 4.13.6;
