Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2009-02-23 21:29:21 UTC
CVE-2009-0675 (
  The skfp_ioctl function in drivers/net/skfp/skfddi.c in the Linux
  kernel before permits SKFP_CLR_STATS requests only when the
  CAP_NET_ADMIN capability is absent, instead of when this capability
  is present, which allows local users to reset the driver statistics,
  related to an "inverted logic" issue.
