CVE-2019-15291

Priority
Description
An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel through 5.2.9. There is a NULL
pointer dereference caused by a malicious USB device in the
flexcop_usb_probe function in the drivers/media/usb/b2c2/flexcop-usb.c
driver.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that the B2C2 FlexCop USB device driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate device metadata. A physically proximate
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
Notes
tyhicksSetting priority to negligible since this simple DoS requires a
malicious USB device to be inserted into the system
As of 2019-08-26, there's no upstream fix.
