Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2009-01-13 23:39:58 UTC
CVE-2008-4307 (
  Race condition in the do_setlk function in fs/nfs/file.c in the Linux
  kernel before 2.6.26 allows local users to cause a denial of service
  (crash) via vectors resulting in an interrupted RPC call that leads
  to a stray FL_POSIX lock, related to improper handling of a race
  between fcntl and close in the EINTR case.
