> DESCRIPTION:
> A vulnerability has been reported in the Linux Kernel, which
> potentially can be exploited by malicious, local users to cause a DoS
> (Denial of Service).
> 
> The vulnerability is caused due to a missing check of the thread's
> group ID in ptrace.c when trying to determine whether the process is
> attempting to attach to itself when CLONE_THREAD is used. This may be
> exploited to cause a kernel crash.
> 
> The vulnerability has been reported in versions prior to 2.6.14.2.
