CVE-2010-4163 (retired)

Priority
Description
The blk_rq_map_user_iov function in block/blk-map.c in the Linux kernel
before 2.6.36.2 allows local users to cause a denial of service (panic) via
a zero-length I/O request in a device ioctl to a SCSI device.
Ubuntu-Description
Dan Rosenberg discovered that the SCSI subsystem did not correctly validate
iov segments. A local attacker with access to a SCSI device could send
specially crafted requests to crash the system, leading to a denial of
service.
