CVE-2010-3448 (retired)

Priority
Description
drivers/platform/x86/thinkpad_acpi.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.34 on
ThinkPad devices, when the X.Org X server is used, does not properly
restrict access to the video output control state, which allows local users
to cause a denial of service (system hang) via a (1) read or (2) write
operation.
Ubuntu-Description
Dan Jacobson discovered that ThinkPad video output was not correctly access
controlled. A local attacker could exploit this to hang the system, leading
to a denial of service.
