CVE-2013-2897

Published: 16 September 2013

Multiple array index errors in drivers/hid/hid-multitouch.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_MULTITOUCH is enabled, allow physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption, or NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device.

From the Ubuntu security team

Kees Cook discovered yet another flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem of the Linux kernel when CONFIG_HID_MULTITOUCH is enabled. A physically proximate attacker could leverage this flaw to cause a denial of service (OOPS) via a specially crafted device.
