Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2010-0307

Original release date: 02/17/2010
Last revised: 03/19/2012
Source: US-CERT/NIST

Overview

The load_elf_binary function in fs/binfmt_elf.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32.8 on the x86_64 platform does not ensure that the ELF interpreter is available before a call to the SET_PERSONALITY macro, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a 32-bit application that attempts to execute a 64-bit application and then triggers a segmentation fault, as demonstrated by amd64_killer, related to the flush_old_exec function.

Impact

CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
CVSS v2 Base Score: 4.7 MEDIUM
Impact Subscore: 6.9
Exploitability Subscore: 3.4
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Locally exploitable
Access Complexity: Medium
Authentication: Not required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows disruption of service
