CVE-2010-3437

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

Integer signedness error in the pkt_find_dev_from_minor function in drivers/block/pktcdvd.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36-rc6 allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted index value in a PKT_CTRL_CMD_STATUS ioctl call.
