Description Pedro Sampaio 2021-08-18 16:53:59 UTC
A flaw was found in the Linux kernels implementation of overlayfs where a local attacker with an unpriviledged account who has the ability to mount a filesystem can abuse a logic bug in the overlayfs code which can inadvertantly reveal files hidden in the orignal mount.
