Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 170262
CVE-2005-3106 exec_mmap race DoS
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:20 EST
Race condition in Linux 2.6, when threads are sharing memory mapping via
CLONE_VM (such as linuxthreads and vfork), might allow local users to cause a
denial of service (deadlock) by triggering a core dump while waiting for a
thread that has just performed an exec.
Fixed upstream in 2.6.11:
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
