      Description

      • A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel handled GS segment register
        base switching when recovering from a #SS (stack segment) fault on an
        erroneous return to user space. A local, unprivileged user could use this
        flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-9322, Important)
