|Bugzilla:||767495: CVE-2011-4604 kernel: bat_socket_read memory corruption|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
The bat_socket_read function in net/batman-adv/icmp_socket.c in the Linux kernel before 3.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted batman-adv ICMP packet.
Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the Linux kernels as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, 6, and Red Hat Enterprise MRG as they did not include support for the BATMAN (Better Approach To Mobile Ad-hoc Networking) out-of-tree kernel module.
