CVE-2019-3819

Description
A flaw was found in the Linux kernel in the function
hid_debug_events_read() in drivers/hid/hid-debug.c file which may enter an
infinite loop with certain parameters passed from a userspace. A local
privileged user ("root") can cause a system lock up and a denial of
service. Versions from v4.18 and newer are vulnerable.
Ubuntu-Description
Vladis Dronov discovered that the debug interface for the Linux kernel's
HID subsystem did not properly validate passed parameters in some
situations. A local privileged attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (infinite loop).
