Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2013:1490 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: kernel-rt security and bug fix update 2013-10-31 20:23:39 UTC

Description Prasad J 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. 

 - CONFIG_LOGITECH_FF
 - CONFIG_LOGIG940_FF
 - CONFIG_LOGIWHEELS_FF
 - CONFIG_LOGIRUMBLEPAD2_FF

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

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 J Pandit 2013-08-23 12:06:02 UTC
Statement:

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.
