(edit)
A an integer overflow vulnerability was discovered in the Linux kernel, from version 3.4 through 4.15, in the drivers/gpu/drm/udl/udl_fb.c:udl_fb_mmap() function. An attacker with access to the udldrmfb driver could exploit this to obtain full read and write permissions on kernel physical pages, resulting in a code execution in kernel space.

Description Sam Fowler 2018-04-24 03:43:30 UTC
The Linux kernel from version 3.4 through 4.15 has an integer overflow vulnerability in the drivers/gpu/drm/udl/udl_fb.c:udl_fb_mmap() function. An attacker with access to the udldrmfb driver could exploit this to obtain full read and write permissions on kernel physical pages, resulting in a code execution in kernel space.
