CVE-2019-11599

Priority
Description
The coredump implementation in the Linux kernel before 5.0.10 does not use
locking or other mechanisms to prevent vma layout or vma flags changes
while it runs, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information,
cause a denial of service, or possibly have unspecified other impact by
triggering a race condition with mmget_not_zero or get_task_mm calls. This
is related to fs/userfaultfd.c, mm/mmap.c, fs/proc/task_mmu.c, and
drivers/infiniband/core/uverbs_main.c.
Ubuntu-Description
Jann Horn discovered that a race condition existed in the Linux kernel when
performing core dumps. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash) or expose sensitive information.
Notes
tyhicksWhile the upstream commit has a Fixes tag that suggests the flaw was
introduced in v4.3, the commit message makes it clear that the issue exists
since before the kernel was stored in git.
