CVE-2008-5079

Status Candidate

Overview

net/atm/svc.c in the ATM subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.6.27.8 and earlier allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel infinite loop) by making two calls to svc_listen for the same socket, and then reading a /proc/net/atm/*vc file, related to corruption of the vcc table.

A vulnerability exists in Linux kernel which can be exploited by malicious users to cause a denial of service. It seems that calling the svc_listen function in 'net/atm/svc.c' twice on the same socket will create unassigned PVC/SVC entries, despite returning EUNATCH.
