CVE-2005-3356

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The mq_open system call in Linux kernel 2.6.9, in certain situations, can decrement a counter twice ("double decrement") as a result of multiple calls to the mntput function when the dentry_open function call fails, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (panic) via unspecified attack vectors.
