CVE-2007-5093 (retired)

Priority
Description
The disconnect method in the Philips USB Webcam (pwc) driver in Linux
kernel 2.6.x before 2.6.22.6 "relies on user space to close the device,"
which allows user-assisted local attackers to cause a denial of service
(USB subsystem hang and CPU consumption in khubd) by not closing the device
after the disconnect is invoked. NOTE: this rarely crosses privilege
boundaries, unless the attacker can convince the victim to unplug the
affected device.
