CVE-2011-1577

Priority
Description
Heap-based buffer overflow in the is_gpt_valid function in
fs/partitions/efi.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.38 and earlier allows
physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (OOPS) or
possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted size of the EFI GUID
partition-table header on removable media.
Ubuntu-Description
Timo Warns discovered that the GUID partition parsing routines did not
correctly validate certain structures. A local attacker with physical
access could plug in a specially crafted block device to crash the system,
leading to a denial of service.
