CVE-2020-12657

Published: 05 May 2020

An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 5.6.5. There is a use-after-free in block/bfq-iosched.c related to bfq_idle_slice_timer_body.

From the Ubuntu security team

It was discovered that the block layer in the Linux kernel contained a race condition leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code.
