In the Linux kernel through 4.19.6, a local user could exploit a use-after-free in the ALSA driver by supplying a malicious USB Sound device (with zero interfaces) that is mishandled in usb_audio_probe in sound/usb/card.c.
An attacker with physical access with a specially crafted USB device in tandem with the ability to run software on the machine may be able to create a situation where an exploit can allow for privilege escalation.
While Red Hat finds this scenario unlikely, this is the most likely case of how an attacker can use this flaw.
