CVE-2017-9985

Published: 28 June 2017

The snd_msndmidi_input_read function in sound/isa/msnd/msnd_midi.c in the Linux kernel through 4.11.7 allows local users to cause a denial of service (over-boundary access) or possibly have unspecified other impact by changing the value of a message queue head pointer between two kernel reads of that value, aka a "double fetch" vulnerability.

From the Ubuntu security team

Pengfei Wang discovered that the Turtle Beach MultiSound audio device driver in the Linux kernel contained race conditions when fetching from the ring-buffer. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (infinite loop).

Priority

Low

CVSS 3 base score: 7.8
