LIN1021-6761 : Security Advisory - linux - CVE-2023-46813

Created: Oct 28, 2023    Updated: Nov 1, 2023
Found In Version:
Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux LTS 21
Component/s: Kernel


An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 6.5.9, exploitable by local users with userspace access to MMIO registers. Incorrect access checking in the #VC handler and instruction emulation of the SEV-ES emulation of MMIO accesses could lead to arbitrary write access to kernel memory (and thus privilege escalation). This depends on a race condition through which userspace can replace an instruction before the #VC handler reads it.
