Privilege escalation vulnerability in Kernel via MAP_PRIVATE COW breakage

ID: oval:org.secpod.oval:def:37803Date: (C)2016-10-21   (M)2018-09-27
Class: VULNERABILITYFamily: unix




The host installed with kernel package on RHEL 5, 6 or 7 and is prone to a privilege escalation vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, which fails to properly handle the copy-on-write (COW) breakage of private read-only memory mappings. Successful exploitation could allow attackers to gain write access to otherwise read-only memory mappings and thus increase their privileges on the system.
