CVE-2016-4565 (retired)

Priority
Description
The InfiniBand (aka IB) stack in the Linux kernel before 4.5.3 incorrectly
relies on the write system call, which allows local users to cause a denial
of service (kernel memory write operation) or possibly have unspecified
other impact via a uAPI interface.
Ubuntu-Description
Jann Horn discovered that the InfiniBand interfaces within the Linux kernel
could be coerced into overwriting kernel memory. A local unprivileged
attacker could use this to possibly gain administrative privileges on
systems where InifiniBand related kernel modules are loaded.
Notes
 jdstrand> android kernels (flo, goldfish, grouper, maguro, mako and manta) are
  not supported on the Ubuntu Touch 14.10 and earlier preview kernels
 jdstrand> linux-lts-saucy no longer receives official support
 jdstrand> linux-lts-quantal no longer receives official support
