CVE-2018-12896

Priority
Description
An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel through 4.17.3. An Integer
Overflow in kernel/time/posix-timers.c in the POSIX timer code is caused by
the way the overrun accounting works. Depending on interval and expiry time
values, the overrun can be larger than INT_MAX, but the accounting is int
based. This basically makes the accounting values, which are visible to
user space via timer_getoverrun(2) and siginfo::si_overrun, random. For
example, a local user can cause a denial of service (signed integer
overflow) via crafted mmap, futex, timer_create, and timer_settime system
calls.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that an integer overrun vulnerability existed in the
POSIX timers implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service.
