CVE-2019-8980

Priority
Description
A memory leak in the kernel_read_file function in fs/exec.c in the Linux
kernel through 4.20.11 allows attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory consumption) by triggering vfs_read failures.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly deallocate memory
when handling certain errors while reading files. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (excessive memory consumption).
