CVE-2018-7480 (retired)

Priority
Description
The blkcg_init_queue function in block/blk-cgroup.c in the Linux kernel
before 4.11 allows local users to cause a denial of service (double free)
or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering a creation failure.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that a double free error existed in the block layer
subsystem of the Linux kernel when setting up a request queue. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code.
