Description Petr Matousek 2013-03-15 06:50:48 EDT
Linux kernel built with USB CDC WDM driver is vulnerable to heap buffer overflow flaw. 

An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to crash the kernel or, potentially, elevate their privileges.

Please note that a physical access to the system or plugging in random USB device is needed in order to exploit this bug.

Statement:

This issue does not affect the version of the kernel package as shipped with

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