A use-after-free flaw was found in the Linux Kernel. This issue occurs due to a race between cm4040_open() and reader_detach() in drivers/char/pcmcia/cm4040_cs.c when a physically proximate attacker removes a PCMCIA device while calling open().

Description Rohit Keshri 2023-01-18 19:00:02 UTC
A race condition may occur if the user physically removes the pcmcia device while calling open() for this char device node. This is a race condition between the cm4040_open() function and the reader_detach() function, which may eventually result in UAF.
