CVE-2017-15102

Published: 15 November 2017

The tower_probe function in drivers/usb/misc/legousbtower.c in the Linux kernel before 4.8.1 allows local users (who are physically proximate for inserting a crafted USB device) to gain privileges by leveraging a write-what-where condition that occurs after a race condition and a NULL pointer dereference.

From the Ubuntu security team

James Patrick-Evans discovered a race condition in the LEGO USB Infrared Tower driver in the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Priority

Low

CVSS 3 base score: 6.3
