Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2009-06-12 21:05:05 UTC
CVE-2009-1914 (
  The pci_register_iommu_region function in
  arch/sparc/kernel/pci_common.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.29 on
  the sparc64 platform allows local users to cause a denial of service
  (system crash) by reading the /proc/iomem file, related to
  uninitialized pointers and the request_resource function.
Comment 2 Kerin Millar 2009-07-24 20:55:51 UTC
Note that the path to the file is "arch/sparc64/kernel/pci_common.c" in kernels prior to 2.6.29.
