CVE-2012-3520

Priority
High
Description
The Netlink implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.2.30 does not
properly handle messages that lack SCM_CREDENTIALS data, which might allow
local users to spoof Netlink communication via a crafted message, as
demonstrated by a message to (1) Avahi or (2) NetworkManager.
Ubuntu-Description
Pablo Neira Ayuso discovered a flaw in the credentials of netlink messages.
An unprivileged local attacker could exploit this by getting a netlink
based service, that relies on netlink credentials, to perform privileged
actions.
