Description

The keyring_detect_cycle_iterator function in security/keys/keyring.c in the Linux kernel through 3.13.6 does not properly determine whether keyrings are identical, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) via crafted keyctl commands.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-kernel-default
  • suse-upgrade-kernel-docs
  • suse-upgrade-kernel-obs-build
  • suse-upgrade-kernel-zfcpdump

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
