Vulnerability in the Solaris component of Oracle Sun Systems Products Suite (subcomponent: Kernel). The supported version that is affected is 11.3. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows high privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Solaris executes to compromise Solaris. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized ability to cause a partial denial of service (partial DOS) of Solaris. CVSS 3.0 Base Score 1.8 (Availability impacts). CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:H/PR:H/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L).
This is 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).
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 is not required to access and exploit the vulnerability.
There is no impact to the confidentiality of the system.
There is no impact to the integrity of the system.
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.
