Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-03-12 04:03:42 EDT
Linux kernel built with Direct Rendering Manager(DRM) i915 driver for the
the Direct Rendering Infrastructure(DRI) introduced by XFree86 4.0, is
vulnerable to a heap overflow flaw.

An user/program with access to the DRM driver could use this flaw to crash
the kernel, resulting in DoS or possibly escalate privileges.

Comment 1 Prasad J Pandit 2013-03-12 04:11:29 EDT
Statement:

This issue does not affect the versions of the kernel package as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

This issue affects the version of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.  Future kernel updates for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2 may address this issue.
