[PATCH 1/3] staging: usbip: fix potential segfault because of unchecked return value of strchr.

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


This doesn't happen with the usbip virtual hci module, but another
module wanting to interface with this user space code could cause a
seg-fault by sending data without newlines.
