Linux Kernel 'sock_sendpage()' NULL Pointer Dereference Vulnerability

The Linux kernel is prone to a local NULL-pointer dereference vulnerability.

A local attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code with superuser privileges or crash an affected kernel, denying service to legitimate users.

Versions prior to the Linux kernel 2.4.37.5 and 2.6.31-rc6 are vulnerable.
