CVE-2013-0871

Published: 17 February 2013

Race condition in the ptrace functionality in the Linux kernel before 3.7.5 allows local users to gain privileges via a PTRACE_SETREGS ptrace system call in a crafted application, as demonstrated by ptrace_death.

From the Ubuntu security team

Suleiman Souhlal, Salman Qazi, Aaron Durbin and Michael Davidson discovered a race condition in the Linux kernel's ptrace syscall. An unprivileged local attacker could exploit this flaw to run programs as an administrator.
