Description Marcel Holtmann 2006-11-23 03:17:01 EST
From MOKB-12-11-2006:

http://projects.info-pull.com/mokb/MOKB-12-11-2006.html

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.
