Vulnerability CVE-2019-11191


Published: 2019-04-11   Modified: 2019-04-12

Description:
The Linux kernel through 5.0.7, when CONFIG_IA32_AOUT is enabled and ia32_aout is loaded, allows local users to bypass ASLR on setuid a.out programs (if any exist) because install_exec_creds() is called too late in load_aout_binary() in fs/binfmt_aout.c, and thus the ptrace_may_access() check has a race condition when reading /proc/pid/stat.

Type:

CWE-362

Vendor: Linux
Product: Linux kernel 
Version: 5.0.7;
