CVE-2017-14954

Priority
Low
Description
The waitid implementation in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel through
4.13.4 accesses rusage data structures in unintended cases, which allows
local users to obtain sensitive information, and bypass the KASLR
protection mechanism, via a crafted system call.
Ubuntu-Description
Alexander Potapenko discovered an information leak in the waitid
implementation of the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to
expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
