CVE-2006-6056 SELinux superblock_doinit denial of service
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:27 EST
Failure to handle mounting of corrupt filesystem streams may lead to a local
denial of service condition when SELinux hooks are enabled. This particular
vulnerability is caused by a null pointer dereference in the superblock_doinit
Not an SELinux problem. It's a problem in HFS return codes from failure.
Already fixed upstream by Eric Sandeen. Will discuss which of us should own the
local bug (we both know the fix just fine)
committed in stream U5 build 42.31. A test kernel with this patch is available
committed in stream E5 build 42.0.4
verified using the MOKB hfs image.
