Description Eugene Teo (Security Response) 2011-06-27 03:19:49 EDT
Buffer overflow in bluetooth's l2cap config request.

"A remote user can provide a small value for the command size field in the command header of an l2cap configuration request, resulting in an integer underflow when subtracting the size of the configuration request header.  This results in copying a very large amount of data via memcpy() and destroying the kernel heap.  Check for underflow."


Red Hat would like to thank Dan Rosenberg for reporting this issue.

This issue did not affect the versions of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5 as they did not backport the upstream commit 5dee9e7c that introduced this issue. This has been addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1189.html, and https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1253.html.
