Description Marian Rehak 2022-04-21 15:05:24 UTC
The root cause of this vulnerability is that the ioctl$DRM_IOCTL_MODE_DESTROY_DUMB can decrease refcount of *drm_vgem_gem_object *(created in *vgem_gem_dumb_create*) concurrently, and  *vgem_gem_dumb_create *will access the freed drm_vgem_gem_object.
