CVE-2011-1012 (retired)

Priority
Description
The ldm_parse_vmdb function in fs/partitions/ldm.c in the Linux kernel
before 2.6.38-rc6-git6 does not validate the VBLK size value in the VMDB
structure in an LDM partition table, which allows local users to cause a
denial of service (divide-by-zero error and OOPS) via a crafted partition
table.
Ubuntu-Description
Timo Warns discovered that LDM partition parsing routines did not correctly
calculate block counts. A local attacker with physical access could plug in
a specially crafted block device to crash the system, leading to a denial
of service.
