Summary

IMSVA 9.x Critical Patch to upgrade Linux kernel and remove the vulnerability CVE-2016-5195 is now available on Trend Micro’s Download Center.

This patch resolves the race condition issue that occurs when the Linux kernel's memory subsystem handles copy-on-write (COW) breakage of private read-only memory mappings. An attacker could use this to gain write access to read-only memory mappings. Anyone who has created an unprivileged root account can be vulnerable to this issue.

This critical patch upgrades the Linux kernel to remove the vulnerability.
