1575065: CVE-2018-10675 kernel: mm: use-after-free in do_get_mempolicy function allows local DoS or other unspecified impact
The do_get_mempolicy() function in mm/mempolicy.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to hit a use-after-free bug via crafted system calls and thus cause a denial of service (DoS) or possibly have unspecified other impact. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out.
