Description Mark J. Cox 2005-03-25 12:55:27 EST
(Affects RHEL2.1, but 2.4 needs a slightly altered patch)

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #152177 +++

A flaw was discovered by Ilja van Sprundel in the bluetooth driver affecting 2.4
and 2.6.  On system where bluetooth modules are loaded, a local user could use
this flaw to gain root privileges.
Comment 1 Jason Baron 2005-03-30 15:31:33 EST
looks like this driver is not in 2.1 x86. 
Comment 2 Jim Paradis 2005-04-19 14:31:29 EDT
It turns out that this driver *is* in 2.1 x86, and I committed a fix to the
RHEL2.1 patch pool for kernel version 2.4.9-e.62
