CVE-2017-11473

Published: 20 July 2017

Buffer overflow in the mp_override_legacy_irq() function in arch/x86/kernel/acpi/boot.c in the Linux kernel through 3.2 allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted ACPI table.

From the Ubuntu security team

It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the ACPI table parsing implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to construct a malicious ACPI table that, when loaded, caused a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Priority

Low

CVSS 3 base score: 7.8
