CVE-2010-4157

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 overflow in the ioc_general function in drivers/scsi/gdth.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36.1 on 64-bit platforms allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a large argument in an ioctl call.
