CVE-2017-12153

Priority
Medium
Description
A security flaw was discovered in the nl80211_set_rekey_data() function in
net/wireless/nl80211.c in the Linux kernel through 4.13.3. This function
does not check whether the required attributes are present in a Netlink
request. This request can be issued by a user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN
capability and may result in a NULL pointer dereference and system crash.
Ubuntu-Description
Bo Zhang discovered that the netlink wireless configuration interface in
the Linux kernel did not properly validate attributes when handling certain
requests. A local attacker with the CAP_NET_ADMIN could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash).

Notes
 sbeattie> attacker needs CAP_NET_ADMIN either at system level or in a
  namespace that also has had a WiFi interface moved into it.
