The netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel through 4.5.2 does not validate certain offset fields, which allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via an IPT_SO_SET_REPLACE setsockopt call.

Patch is available.

Only vulnerable if unprivileged user namespaces are enabled.

CVSS v3 Base Score: 8.4 High
