Linux Kernel DCCP_PKT_REQUEST Privilege Escalation Exploit

This module exploits a double-free vulnerability in the Linux Kernel. The dccp_rcv_state_process function in net/dccp/input.c in the Linux kernel through 4.9.11 mishandles DCCP_PKT_REQUEST packet data structures in the LISTEN state, which allows local users to escalate privileges via an application that makes an IPV6_RECVPKTINFO setsockopt system call.
