CVE-2015-5283 (retired)

Priority
Description
The sctp_init function in net/sctp/protocol.c in the Linux kernel before
4.2.3 has an incorrect sequence of protocol-initialization steps, which
allows local users to cause a denial of service (panic or memory
corruption) by creating SCTP sockets before all of the steps have finished.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that the SCTP protocol implementation in the Linux kernel
performed an incorrect sequence of protocol-initialization steps. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
