CVE-2016-5829 (retired)

Priority
Description
Multiple heap-based buffer overflows in the hiddev_ioctl_usage function in
drivers/hid/usbhid/hiddev.c in the Linux kernel through 4.6.3 allow local
users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other
impact via a crafted (1) HIDIOCGUSAGES or (2) HIDIOCSUSAGES ioctl call.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that a heap based buffer overflow existed in the USB HID
driver in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this cause a denial
of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
