Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> Subject: CVE request: kernel: Unix sockets kernel panic Hi, We need a CVE name for this issue. This was reported in netdev today. "The following code causes a kernel panic on Linux 2.6.26: http://darkircop.org/unix.c I haven't investigated the bug so I'm not sure what is causing it, and don't know if it's exploitable. The code passes unix sockets from one process to another using unix sockets. The bug probably has to do with closing file descriptors." http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=122593044330973&w=2 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=470201 There isn't a fix yet. Dave is working on it. Thanks, Eugene
