[SECURITY] memory corruption in X.25 facilities parsing

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

I put this together after a quick glance, so if someone knows this code
better than I do (i.e. at all), feel free to comment or drop this patch
if it's unnecessary.

A value of 0 will cause a memcpy() of ULONG_MAX size, destroying the
kernel heap.
