CVE-2012-3511

Published: 24 August 2012

Multiple race conditions in the madvise_remove function in mm/madvise.c in the Linux kernel before 3.4.5 allow local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and system crash) via vectors involving a (1) munmap or (2) close system call.

From the Ubuntu Security Team

A flaw was discovered in the madvise feature of the Linux kernel's memory subsystem. An unprivileged local use could exploit the flaw to cause a denial of service (crash the system).
