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
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
