Comment 1 GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2013-11-27 21:56:45 UTC
CVE-2013-6382 (
  Multiple buffer underflows in the XFS implementation in the Linux kernel
  through 3.12.1 allow local users to cause a denial of service (memory
  corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the
  CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability for a (1) XFS_IOC_ATTRLIST_BY_HANDLE or (2)
  XFS_IOC_ATTRLIST_BY_HANDLE_32 ioctl call with a crafted length value,
  related to the xfs_attrlist_by_handle function in fs/xfs/xfs_ioctl.c and the
  xfs_compat_attrlist_by_handle function in fs/xfs/xfs_ioctl32.c.
