CVE-2013-1848

Published: 22 March 2013

fs/ext3/super.c in the Linux kernel before 3.8.4 uses incorrect arguments to functions in certain circumstances related to printk input, which allows local users to conduct format-string attacks and possibly gain privileges via a crafted application.

From the Ubuntu security team

A format-string bug was discovered in the Linux kernel's ext3 filesystem driver. A local user could exploit this flaw to possibly escalate privileges on the system.
