15-year-old Linux kernel bugs let attackers gain root privileges
Three vulnerabilities found in the iSCSI subsystem of the Linux kernel could allow local attackers with basic user privileges to gain root privileges on unpatched Linux systems.
These security bugs can only be exploited locally, which means that potential attackers will have to gain access to vulnerable devices by exploiting another vulnerability or using an alternative attack vector.
The 15-year old Linux kernel bugs
GRIMM researchers discovered the bugs 15 years after they were introduced in 2006 during the initial development stages of the iSCSI kernel subsystem.
