CVE-2023-6546

Kernel: gsm multiplexing race condition leads to privilege escalation

Assignerredhat
Reserved2023-12-06
Published2023-12-21
Updated2024-07-16

Description

A race condition was found in the GSM 0710 tty multiplexor in the Linux kernel. This issue occurs when two threads execute the GSMIOC_SETCONF ioctl on the same tty file descriptor with the gsm line discipline enabled, and can lead to a use-after-free problem on a struct gsm_dlci while restarting the gsm mux. This could allow a local unprivileged user to escalate their privileges on the system.
