Concurrent Execution using Shared Resource with Improper Synchronization ('Race Condition')
A race condition vulnerability was reported in IMController, a software component of Lenovo System Interface Foundation, prior to version 184.108.40.206 that could allow a local attacker to connect and interact with the IMController child process' named pipe.
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.
