CVE-2016-2187 (retired)

Priority
Description
The gtco_probe function in drivers/input/tablet/gtco.c in the Linux kernel
through 4.5.2 allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of
service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted endpoints
value in a USB device descriptor.
Ubuntu-Description
Ralf Spenneberg discovered that the Linux kernel's GTCO digitizer USB
device driver did not properly validate endpoint descriptors. An attacker
with physical access could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash).
