CVE-2016-3857

Published: 5 August 2016

The kernel in Android before 2016-08-05 on Nexus 7 (2013) devices allows attackers to gain privileges via a crafted application, aka internal bug 28522518.

From the Ubuntu security team

Chiachih Wu, Yuan-Tsung Lo, and Xuxian Jiang discovered that the legacy ABI for ARM (OABI) had incomplete access checks for epoll_wait(2) and semtimedop(2). A local attacker could use this to possibly execute arbitrary code.
