|Bugzilla:||755431: CVE-2011-4330 kernel: hfs: add sanity check for file name length|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
Stack-based buffer overflow in the hfs_mac2asc function in fs/hfs/trans.c in the Linux kernel 2.6 allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via an HFS image with a crafted len field.
This issue did not affect the Linux kernels as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG as they did not include support for the Hierarchical File System (HFS) file system. This has been addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0007.html.
