CVE-2010-4248

Priority
Description
Race condition in the __exit_signal function in kernel/exit.c in the Linux
kernel before 2.6.37-rc2 allows local users to cause a denial of service
via vectors related to multithreaded exec, the use of a thread group leader
in kernel/posix-cpu-timers.c, and the selection of a new thread group
leader in the de_thread function in fs/exec.c.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that multithreaded exec did not handle CPU timers
correctly. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading
to a denial of service.
