Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 217018
CVE-2006-6054 ext2_check_page denial of service
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:38 EST
The ext2 filesystem code fails to properly handle corrupted data structures,
leading to an exploitable denial of service issue when read operation is being
done on a crafted fs stream.
I have a patch for this in -mm now so fine w/ me for devel ack. Will post it soon.
QE ack for RHEL5.
Built into 2.6.18-1.3002.el5.
