Linux Kernel 'usbhid/hiddev.c' Local Heap Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

The Linux kernel is prone to a local heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data.

Local attackers may exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code within the context of the affected application. Failed exploit attempts will likely crash the kernel, denying service to legitimate users.
