Linux Kernel n_tty_write Privilege Escalation Exploit

This module exploits a vulnerability in the Linux Kernel. The n_tty_write function in drivers/tty/n_tty.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.3 does not properly manage tty driver access in the "LECHO & !OPOST" case, which allows local attackers to escalate privileges triggering a race condition involving read and write operations with long strings.
