CVE-2013-4514

Priority
Low
Description
Multiple buffer overflows in drivers/staging/wlags49_h2/wl_priv.c in the
Linux kernel before 3.12 allow local users to cause a denial of service or
possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN
capability and providing a long station-name string, related to the (1)
wvlan_uil_put_info and (2) wvlan_set_station_nickname functions.
Ubuntu-Description
Nico Golde and Fabian Yamaguchi reported a flaw in the Linux kernel's
driver for Agere Systems HERMES II Wireless PC Cards. A local user with the
CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of
service or possibly gain adminstrative priviliges.
