|Bugzilla:||649695: CVE-2010-3874 kernel: CAN minor heap overflow|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
Heap-based buffer overflow in the bcm_connect function in net/can/bcm.c (aka the Broadcast Manager) in the Controller Area Network (CAN) implementation in the Linux kernel before 184.108.40.206 on 64-bit platforms might allow local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a connect operation.
The Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4 and 5 did not include CAN bus subsystem support, and therefore are not affected by this issue. Future kernel updates in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG may address this flaw.
