CVE-2010-4157

Published: 10 December 2010

Integer overflow in the ioc_general function in drivers/scsi/gdth.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36.1 on 64-bit platforms allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a large argument in an ioctl call.

From the Ubuntu security team

James Bottomley discovered that the ICP vortex storage array controller driver did not validate certain sizes. A local attacker on a 64bit system could exploit this to crash the kernel, leading to a denial of service.
