CVE-2007-2172 fib_semantics.c out of bounds access vulnerability
Last modified: 2013-03-06 00:59:49 EST
The Linux kernel is prone to an out-of-bounds-access vulnerability. This issue
occurs because the semantics for IPv4 Forwarding Information Base fail to
adequately bounds-check user-supplied data before accessing an array.
An attacker can exploit this issue to cause denial-of-service conditions.
Arbitrary code execution may also be possible, but this has not been confirmed.
committed in stream rhel‑4.5.z build 55.0.1
Is there a reproducer for this one?
