An unprivileged local user can crash the kernel by starting a transaction, suspending it, and then calling any of the exec() class system calls. More info: https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/636776/ https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/636774/ (test case) Could you please allocate a CVE for this? cheers Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (820 bytes)
