CVE-2021-20317

Published: 27 September 2021

A flaw was found in the Linux kernel. A corrupted timer tree caused the task wakeup to be missing in the timerqueue_add function in lib/timerqueue.c. This flaw allows a local attacker with special user privileges to cause a denial of service, slowing and eventually stopping the system while running OSP.

From the Ubuntu security team

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the timer implementation in the Linux kernel. A privileged attacker could use this to cause a denial of service.

Priority

Low

CVSS 3 base score: 4.4
