CVE-2006-2935

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The dvd_read_bca function in the DVD handling code in drivers/cdrom/cdrom.c in Linux kernel 2.2.16, and later versions, assigns the wrong value to a length variable, which allows local users to execute arbitrary code via a crafted USB Storage device that triggers a buffer overflow.
