CVE-2016-5400 (retired)

Priority
Description
Memory leak in the airspy_probe function in
drivers/media/usb/airspy/airspy.c in the airspy USB driver in the Linux
kernel before 4.7 allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory
consumption) via a crafted USB device that emulates many VFL_TYPE_SDR or
VFL_TYPE_SUBDEV devices and performs many connect and disconnect
operations.
Ubuntu-Description
James Patrick-Evans discovered that the airspy USB device driver in the
Linux kernel did not properly handle certain error conditions. An attacker
with physical access could use this to cause a denial of service (memory
consumption).
