CVE-2015-3291 (retired)

Priority
Description
arch/x86/entry/entry_64.S in the Linux kernel before 4.1.6 on the x86_64
platform does not properly determine when nested NMI processing is
occurring, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (skipped
NMI) by modifying the rsp register, issuing a syscall instruction, and
triggering an NMI.
Ubuntu-Description
Andy Lutomirski discovered a flaw that allows user to cause the Linux
kernel to ignore some NMIs (non-maskable interrupts). A local unprivileged
user could exploit this flaw to potentially cause the system to miss
important NMIs resulting in unspecified effects.
Notes
