Linux kernel built with the Human Interface Device(CONFIG_HID) support along
with the Minibox PicoLCD devices(CONFIG_HID_PICOLCD) driver is vulnerable to
a NULL pointer dereference flaw. It could occur when the HID device sends
malicious output report to the kernel driver.
A local user with physical access to the system could use this flaw to crash
the kernel resulting in DoS.
This issue does not affect the versions of the kernel package as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.
