Linux kernel is vulnerable to denial of service(DoS) attacks. This is because Salsa20 encryption algorithm does not correctly handle zero-length inputs. This allows a local attacker to use the AF_ALG-based skcipher interface to cause a denial of service (uninitialized-memory free and kernel crash) or have an unspecified other impact by executing a crafted sequence on the system.
