CVE-2006-1066

Impact by CVSS Score
  • ID: CVE-2006-1066
Summary:

Linux kernel 2.6.16-rc2 and earlier, when running on x86_64 systems with preemption enabled, allows local users to cause a denial of service (oops) via multiple ptrace tasks that perform single steps, which can cause corruption of the DEBUG_STACK stack during the do_debug function call.

Exploitability Analysis: Local

A vulnerability exploitable with only local access requires the attacker to have either physical access to the vulnerable system or a local (shell) account. Examples of locally exploitable vulnerabilities are peripheral attacks such as Firewire/USB DMA attacks, and local privilege escalations (e.g., sudo).

Exploitability Complexity: High

Specialized access conditions exist. For example, in most configurations, the attacking party must already have elevated privileges or spoof additional systems in addition to the attacking system (e.g., DNS hijacking). The attack depends on social engineering methods that would be easily detected by knowledgeable people. For example, the victim must perform several suspicious or atypical actions. The vulnerable configuration is seen very rarely in practice. If a race condition exists, the window is very narrow.

Authentication: None

Authentication is not required to access and exploit the vulnerability.

Confidentiality Impact: None

There is no impact to the confidentiality of the system.

Integrity Impact: None

There is no impact to the integrity of the system.

Availability Impact: Partial

There is reduced performance or interruptions in resource availability. An example is a network-based flood attack that permits a limited number of successful connections to an Internet service.
