CVE-2011-1180

Priority
Description
Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the
iriap_getvaluebyclass_indication function in net/irda/iriap.c in the Linux
kernel before 2.6.39 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging
connectivity to an IrDA infrared network and sending a large integer value
for a (1) name length or (2) attribute length.
Ubuntu-Description
Dan Rosenberg discovered that the IRDA subsystem did not correctly check
certain field sizes. If a system was using IRDA, a remote attacker could
send specially crafted traffic to crash the system or gain root privileges.
