CVE-2017-15102 (retired)

Priority
Description
The tower_probe function in drivers/usb/misc/legousbtower.c in the Linux
kernel before 4.8.1 allows local users (who are physically proximate for
inserting a crafted USB device) to gain privileges by leveraging a
write-what-where condition that occurs after a race condition and a NULL
pointer dereference.
Ubuntu-Description
James Patrick-Evans discovered a race condition in the LEGO USB Infrared
Tower driver in the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code.
