Description
The utimensat system call (sys_utimensat) in Linux kernel 2.6.22 and other
versions before 2.6.25.3 does not check file permissions when certain
UTIME_NOW and UTIME_OMIT combinations are used, which allows local users to
modify file times of arbitrary files, possibly leading to a denial of
service.

in certain situations. A local attacker could exploit this to modify the
file times of arbitrary files which could lead to a denial of service.
