CVE-2015-8785 (retired)

Priority
Description
The fuse_fill_write_pages function in fs/fuse/file.c in the Linux kernel
before 4.4 allows local users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop)
via a writev system call that triggers a zero length for the first segment
of an iov.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that the Linux kernel's Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE)
implementation did not handle initial zero length segments properly. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (unkillable
task).
