Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-11-22 07:24:09 EST
Linux kernel built with the Marvell 8xxx Libertas WLAN driver support
(CONFIG_LIBERTAS) is vulnerable to an invalid pointer dereference flaw. It could 
occur while writing to a file under debugfs.

A privileged user could use this flaw to crash the system resulting in DoS.
