CVE-2016-10088 (retired)

Priority
Description
The sg implementation in the Linux kernel through 4.9 does not properly
restrict write operations in situations where the KERNEL_DS option is set,
which allows local users to read or write to arbitrary kernel memory
locations or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging
access to a /dev/sg device, related to block/bsg.c and drivers/scsi/sg.c.
NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for
CVE-2016-9576.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that the generic SCSI block layer in the Linux kernel did
not properly restrict write operations in certain situations. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly gain administrative privileges.
Notes
jdstrandandroid kernels (flo, goldfish, grouper, maguro, mako and manta) are
not supported on the Ubuntu Touch 14.10 and earlier preview kernels
linux-lts-saucy no longer receives official support
linux-lts-quantal no longer receives official support
sbeattieattack requires access to /dev/sg or other block scsi devices.
