Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 154551
CAN-2005-1041 crash while reading /proc/net/route
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:17 EST
The fib_seq_start function in fib_hash.c in Linux kernel allows local
users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via /proc/net/route.
I have already submitted the fix for this for RHEL4 inclusion.
I'll attach it here, but can someone verify that it got put
into the RHEL4 tree already?
