CVE-2018-20856

Priority
Description
An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 4.18.7. In
block/blk-core.c, there is an __blk_drain_queue() use-after-free because a
certain error case is mishandled.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that a use-after-free error existed in the block layer
subsystem of the Linux kernel when certain failure conditions occurred. A
local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
