CVE-2021-41073

Published: 19 September 2021

loop_rw_iter in fs/io_uring.c in the Linux kernel 5.10 through 5.14.6 allows local users to gain privileges by using IORING_OP_PROVIDE_BUFFERS to trigger a free of a kernel buffer, as demonstrated by using /proc/<pid>/maps for exploitation.

From the Ubuntu security team

Valentina Palmiotti discovered that the io_uring subsystem in the Linux kernel could be coerced to free adjacent memory. A local attacker could use this to execute arbitrary code.

Priority

High

CVSS 3 base score: 7.8
