Resource Management Errors
The i915 driver in (1) drivers/char/drm/i915_dma.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.24 on Debian GNU/Linux and (2) sys/dev/pci/drm/i915_drv.c in OpenBSD does not restrict the DRM_I915_HWS_ADDR ioctl to the Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) master, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted ioctl call, related to absence of the DRM_MASTER and DRM_ROOT_ONLY flags in the ioctl's configuration.
CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors
Resource management errors is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to improper management of system resources. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category can lead to unexpected software behavior, loss of access, file modification, sensitive information disclosure, system crash, denial of service, and code execution.
