|Bugzilla:||919315: CVE-2013-1828 kernel: sctp: SCTP_GET_ASSOC_STATS stack buffer overflow|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
The sctp_getsockopt_assoc_stats function in net/sctp/socket.c in the Linux kernel before 3.8.4 does not validate a size value before proceeding to a copy_from_user operation, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted application that contains an SCTP_GET_ASSOC_STATS getsockopt system call.
This issue did not affect the versions of the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6, and Red Hat Enterprise MRG as those versions are missing upstream commit 196d6759 that introduced this issue.
