Description Prasad Pandit 2013-08-23 12:03:41 UTC
Linux kernel built with the Human Interface Device(CONFIG_HID) support along
with the Logitech force feedback drivers is vulnerable to a heap overflow flaw. 


It could occur when the HID device sends malicious output report to the kernel

A local user with physical access to the system could use this flaw to crash
the kernel resulting in DoS or potential privilege escalation to gain root
access via arbitrary code execution.

Comment 1 Prasad Pandit 2013-08-23 12:06:02 UTC

This issue does not affect the versions of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

This issue affects the version of the kernel package as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2. Future kernel updates for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 may address this issue.

Note: user would need physical access to the system to exploit this issue.
