Concurrent Execution using Shared Resource with Improper Synchronization ('Race Condition')
In android for MSM, Firefox OS for MSM, QRD Android, with all Android releases from CAF using the Linux kernel, missing race condition protection while updating msg mask table can lead to buffer over-read. Also access to freed memory can happen while updating msg_mask information.
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.
