Concurrent Execution using Shared Resource with Improper Synchronization ('Race Condition')
Race condition in the Pipe (IPC) close function in FreeBSD 6.3 and 6.4 allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) or gain privileges via vectors related to kqueues, which triggers a use after free, leading to a NULL pointer dereference or memory corruption.
CWE-362 - Race Condition
A race condition occurs in a shared memory program when two threads/processes access the same shared memory data, and at least one thread executes a write operation. This vulnerability manipulates the time to check vs. time to use (TOC/TOU) gap between the threads in the critical section to cause disorientation in the shared data. The impact can vary from compromising the confidentiality of the system to causing the system to crash or to execute arbitrary code.
