A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the Minibox PicoLCD driver handled Human Interface Device (HID) reports with an invalid size. An attacker with physical access to the system could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system.

Description Prasad J Pandit 2014-09-13 02:29:45 UTC
Linux kernel built with the Human Interface Device(HID) Bus support(CONFIG_HID)
along with a driver for Minibox PicoLCD devices support(CONFIG_HID_PICOLCD),
is vulnerable to an OOB write flaw. It could occur if a device offers an HID
report with arbitrary(>64) data size value.

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.
