Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 6.8 [CVSS:3.1/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2023-0461

CWE-ID: CWE-416 - Use After Free

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to escalate privileges on the system.

The vulnerability exists due to a use-after-free error within the Upper Level Protocol (ULP) subsystem in Linux kernel caused by improper handling of sockets entering the LISTEN state in certain protocols. A local user can trigger a use-after-free error and execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
