CVE-2006-7203

MEDIUM
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 compat_sys_mount function in fs/compat.c in Linux kernel 2.6.20 and earlier allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and oops) by mounting a smbfs file system in compatibility mode ("mount -t smbfs").
