Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The Linux kernel before 184.108.40.206 allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (panic) by calling the (1) mmap or (2) mremap function, aka the "do_mremap() mess" or "mremap/mmap mess."
CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls
CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
