Description Prasad Pandit 2013-05-03 11:02:15 UTC
Linux kernel built with the ChipIdia Highspeed Dual Role Controller
(CONFIG_USB_CHIPIDEA) along with the ChipIdea host controller
(CONFIG_USB_CHIPIDEA_HOST) modules, is vulnerable to a kernel crash.
It could occur while streaming content over network via USB/Ethernet adapter.

A user/program could use this flaw to crash the kernel, resulting in DoS.

Comment 1 Prasad Pandit 2013-05-03 11:40:07 UTC

This issue does not affect the versions of Linux kernel as shipped with
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

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

Comment 3 errata-xmlrpc 2013-09-16 17:04:21 UTC
This issue has been addressed in following products:

  MRG for RHEL-6 v.2
