Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-08-23 09:23:47 EDT
Linux kernel built with the Human Interface Device bus (CONFIG_HID) or USB Human
Interface Device(CONFIG_USB_HID) support is vulnerable to a memory corruption flaw. It could occur if an HID device sends malicious HID report with the Report_ID of greater than 255.

A local user with physical access to the system could use this flaw to crash
the system resulting in DoS or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system.
