The vulnerability exists due to a lack of sanitisation performed on a user-controlled integer value before the value is employed as the size argument of a memory allocation operation. An attacker may leverage this vulnerability to trigger a kernel panic on a victim's machine remotely. This affects kernel versions since 2.6.17-rc1. The proposed upstream commit is: 3e8a0a559c66ee9e7468195691a56fefc3589740 I have allocated this CVE-2008-3276. Thanks, Eugene -- Eugene Teo / Red Hat Security Response Team
