Class: VULNERABILITYFamily: unix




The host is installed with Linux kernel through 3.17.2 and is prone to a denial of service vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, which does not properly maintain the semantics of rename_lock. Successful exploitation allows local users to cause a denial of service (deadlock and system hang).
