Date: Thu, 4 Nov 2010 15:44:16 -0400 From: Nelson Elhage <nelhage@...lice.com> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: CVE request: kernel: logic error in INET_DIAG bytecode auditing INET_DIAG is inconsistent about how it looks up the bytecode contained in a netlink message, making it possible for a user to cause the kernel to execute unaudited INET_DIAG bytecode. This can be abused to make the kernel enter an infinite loop, and possibly other consequences, although I haven't thought of anything else interesting.
