CVE-2008-7256

Priority
Description
mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28-rc8, when strict overcommit is
enabled and CONFIG_SECURITY is disabled, does not properly handle the
export of shmemfs objects by knfsd, which allows attackers to cause a
denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and knfsd crash) or possibly
have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors. NOTE: this
vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2010-1643.
