Linux Kernel Sysctl Unregistration Local Denial of Service Vulnerability

Linux Kernel is reported prone to a local denial-of-service vulnerability. This issue arises from a failure to properly unregister kernel resources when network devices are removed.

This issue allows local attackers to deny service to legitimate users. Attackers may also be able to execute arbitrary code in the context of the kernel, but this has not been confirmed.
