CVE-2018-10087

Published: 13 April 2018

The kernel_wait4 function in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13, when an unspecified architecture and compiler is used, might allow local users to cause a denial of service by triggering an attempted use of the -INT_MIN value.

From the Ubuntu security team

It was discovered that the wait4() system call in the Linux kernel did not properly validate its arguments in some situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service.

Priority
