CVE-2017-6001

Priority
Medium
Description
Race condition in kernel/events/core.c in the Linux kernel before 4.9.7
allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted application that makes
concurrent perf_event_open system calls for moving a software group into a
hardware context. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete
fix for CVE-2016-6786.
Ubuntu-Description
Di Shen discovered that a race condition existed in the perf subsystem of
the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service or possibly gain administrative privileges.
