Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> Subject: CVE-2009-0031 kernel: local denial of service in keyctl_join_session_keyring According to upstream commit 0d54ee1c7850a954026deec4cd4885f331da35cc "security: introduce missing kfree" there is a missing kfree in keyctl_join_session_keyring. It looks like a local user could eventually cause a DoS by using up kernel memory, so I assigned this CVE-2009-0031. http://git2.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=0d54ee1c7850a954026deec4cd4885f331da35cc Thanks, Mark -- Mark J Cox / Red Hat Security Response Team
