CVE-2010-3874

Published: 29 December 2010

Heap-based buffer overflow in the bcm_connect function in net/can/bcm.c (aka the Broadcast Manager) in the Controller Area Network (CAN) implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36.2 on 64-bit platforms might allow local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a connect operation.

From the Ubuntu security team

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the CAN protocol on 64bit systems did not correctly calculate the size of certain buffers. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system or possibly execute arbitrary code as the root user.
