Linux Kernel setsockopt System Call Untrusted Pointer Dereference Information Disclosure Vulnerability

Linux Kernel における情報漏えいに関する脆弱性


Ryota Shiga (@Ga_ryo_)


This vulnerability allows local attackers to disclose sensitive information on affected installations of Linux Kernel. An attacker must first obtain the ability to execute low-privileged code on the target system in order to exploit this vulnerability. The specific flaw exists within the handling of arguments to the setsockopt system call. The issue results from the lack of proper validation of a user-supplied value prior to dereferencing it as a pointer. An attacker can leverage this in conjunction with other vulnerabilities to escalate privileges and execute code in the context of the kernel. https://www.zerodayinitiative.com/advisories/ZDI-21-100/
