CVE-2009-0269 - Resource Management Errors vulnerability in Linux Kernel

Publication: 2009-01-26
Summary

fs/ecryptfs/inode.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (fault or memory corruption), or possibly have unspecified other impact, via a readlink call that results in an error, leading to use of a -1 return value as an array index.
