CVE-2016-4568

HIGH
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

drivers/media/v4l2-core/videobuf2-v4l2.c in the Linux kernel before 4.5.3 allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel memory write operation) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted number of planes in a VIDIOC_DQBUF ioctl call.
