kernel is vulnerable to privilege escalation. The vulnerability exists as permission issues were found in the megaraid_sas driver. The “dbg_lvl” and “poll_mode_io” files on the sysfs file system (“/sys/”) had world-writable permissions. This could allow local, unprivileged users to change the behavior of the driver.
