Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-03-05 04:53:34 EST
Linux kernel built with support for XFS file system is vulnerable to a NULL
pointer dereference flaw. This occurs while accessing blocks beyond the end
of the file system, possibly on a corrupted device.

A user able to mount the file system could use this flaw to crash the kernel, resulting in DoS.
