CVE-2007-3513

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 lcd_write function in drivers/usb/misc/usblcd.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.22-rc7 does not limit the amount of memory used by a caller, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption).
