/* ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* cve-2014-3631_poc.c
*
* The assoc_array_gc function in the associative-array implementation in lib/assoc_array.c in the Linux kernel before
3.16.3
* does not properly implement garbage collection, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer
dereference and system crash)
* or possibly have unspecified other impact via multiple "keyctl newring" operations followed by a
"keyctl timeout" operation.
*
*
* This is a POC to reproduce vulnerability. No exploitation here, just simple kernel panic.
*
* Compile with gcc -fno-stack-protector -Wall -o cve-2014-3631_poc cve-2014-3631_poc.c -lkeyutils
