CVE-2007-3105

Priority
Description
Stack-based buffer overflow in the random number generator (RNG)
implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.22 might allow local root
users to cause a denial of service or gain privileges by setting the
default wakeup threshold to a value greater than the output pool size,
which triggers writing random numbers to the stack by the pool transfer
function involving "bound check ordering". NOTE: this issue might only
cross privilege boundaries in environments that have granular assignment of
privileges for root.
