The Linux kernel is prone to a local denial-of-service vulnerability in the ‘eCryptfs’ component.
Attackers can exploit this issue to corrupt memory, resulting in a denial-of-service condition. Given the nature of this issue, attackers may also be able to run arbitrary code, but this has not been confirmed.
Versions prior to Linux kernel 188.8.131.52 are vulnerable.
