Bug Description

kernel/user_namespace.c in the Linux kernel before 3.8.9 does not have appropriate capability requirements for the uid_map and gid_map files, which allows local users to gain privileges by opening a file within an unprivileged process and then modifying the file within a privileged process.

Break-Fix: 771b1371686e0a63e938ada28de020b9a0040f55 935d8aabd4331f47a89c3e1daa5779d23cf244ee
Break-Fix: 771b1371686e0a63e938ada28de020b9a0040f55 6708075f104c3c9b04b23336bb0366ca30c3931b
Break-Fix: 771b1371686e0a63e938ada28de020b9a0040f55 e3211c120a85b792978bcb4be7b2886df18d27f0
