SGI IRIX PIOCSWATCH local denial of service vulnerability

by Mario Miri on July 22nd, 2003 It has been reported that SGI IRIX does not properly handle the PIOCSWATCH option of the ioctl system call. Because of this, an attacker with local access to the system may crash the system, constituting a local denial of service.
