Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-03-25 11:47:04 UTC
CVE-2013-7339 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2013-7339):

The rds_ib_laddr_check function in net/rds/ib.c in the Linux kernel before 3.12.8 allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a bind system call for an RDS socket on a system that lacks RDS transports.
