Doc Text:
A flaw was found in the Linux kernel. A use-after-free flaw in isotp_setsockopt leads to arbitrary kernel execution by overwriting the sk_error_report() pointer which can be misused in order to execute a user-controlled ROP chain to gain root privileges. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality and integrity as well as system availability.

Description Marian Rehak 2021-05-12 05:01:13 UTC
The isotp_setsockopt in net/can/isotp.c allows a use-after-free. This leads to arbitrary kernel execution by overwriting the sk_error_report()
pointer, which can be misused in order to execute a user-controlled ROP chain to gain root privileges.
