Date: Tue, 4 Mar 2014 17:59:56 +0100 From: Petr Matousek <pmatouse@...hat.com> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: CVE-2014-0102 -- Linux kernel: security: keyring cycle detector DoS The problem is that search_nested_keyrings() sees two keyrings that have matching type and description, so keyring_compare_object() returns true. s_n_k() then passes the key to the iterator function - keyring_detect_cycle_iterator() - which *should* check to see whether this is the keyring of interest, not just one with the same name and, leads to BUG_ON. An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to crash the system.
