Description Marcel Holtmann 2006-12-06 08:18:08 EST
From Al Viro:

Handling of incoming packet in net/bluetooth/cmtp/capi.c:

                controller = CAPIMSG_U32(skb->data, CAPI_MSG_BASELEN + 12);
                if (!info && ctrl) {
                        memset(ctrl->serial, 0, CAPI_SERIAL_LEN);
                                skb->data + CAPI_MSG_BASELEN + 17,
                                skb->data[CAPI_MSG_BASELEN + 16]);

The "->serial" is "unsigned char[8]" and no checks are done on
"skb->data[CAPI_MSG_BASELEN + 16]" incoming packet.

This could mess with "struct capi_ctr" from include/linux/isdn/capilli.h and
give a posibility to overwrite "struct proc_dir_entry *procent;".

The "case CAPI_FUNCTION_GET_MANUFACTURER:" in the same place is dealing with
same problem.
