CVE-2017-11176 (retired)

Priority
Description
The mq_notify function in the Linux kernel through 4.11.9 does not set the
sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. During a user-space
close of a Netlink socket, it allows attackers to cause a denial of service
(use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the POSIX
message queue implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code.
