Linux Kernel 2.6.22.16 and Prior Multiple Memory Corruption Vulnerabilities

The Linux kernel is prone to multiple memory-corruption vulnerabilities due to insufficient range checking in certain fault handlers.

Local attackers could exploit these issues to cause denial-of-service conditions, bypass certain security restrictions, and potentially access sensitive information or gain elevated privileges.

These issues affect versions prior to 2.6.22.17.
