CVE-2013-4514

Published: 12 November 2013

Multiple buffer overflows in drivers/staging/wlags49_h2/wl_priv.c in the Linux kernel before 3.12 allow local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and providing a long station-name string, related to the (1) wvlan_uil_put_info and (2) wvlan_set_station_nickname functions.

From the Ubuntu security team

Nico Golde and Fabian Yamaguchi reported a flaw in the Linux kernel's driver for Agere Systems HERMES II Wireless PC Cards. A local user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service or possibly gain adminstrative priviliges.
