kernel: denial of service

Package(s):kernel CVE #(s):CVE-2012-6647
Created:June 18, 2014 Updated:June 18, 2014
Description: From the CVE entry:

The futex_wait_requeue_pi function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel before 3.5.1 does not ensure that calls have two different futex addresses, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted FUTEX_WAIT_REQUEUE_PI command.
