Use CVE-2015-4177 for the issue fixed in

present in 4.0.2.

original post:

Linux kernel built with the user namespaces support(CONFIG_USER_NS) is vulnerable to a NULL pointer dereference flaw. It could occur when users in user namespaces do unmount mounts.

An unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system resulting in DoS.
