CVE-2011-0640

Priority
Description
The default configuration of udev on Linux does not warn the user before
enabling additional Human Interface Device (HID) functionality over USB,
which allows user-assisted attackers to execute arbitrary programs via
crafted USB data, as demonstrated by keyboard and mouse data sent by
malware on a smartphone that the user connected to the computer.
