CVE-2021-46927 Detail


In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: nitro_enclaves: Use get_user_pages_unlocked() call to handle mmap assert After commit 5b78ed24e8ec ("mm/pagemap: add mmap_assert_locked() annotations to find_vma*()"), the call to get_user_pages() will trigger the mmap assert. static inline void mmap_assert_locked(struct mm_struct *mm) { lockdep_assert_held(&mm->mmap_lock); VM_BUG_ON_MM(!rwsem_is_locked(&mm->mmap_lock), mm); } [ 62.521410] kernel BUG at include/linux/mmap_lock.h:156! ........................................................... [ 62.538938] RIP: 0010:find_vma+0x32/0x80 ...........................................................
