Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2011-10-08 17:29:41 UTC
CVE-2011-2184 (
  The key_replace_session_keyring function in security/keys/process_keys.c in
  the Linux kernel before does not initialize a certain structure
  member, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer
  dereference and OOPS) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a
  KEYCTL_SESSION_TO_PARENT argument to the keyctl function, a different
  vulnerability than CVE-2010-2960.
