CVE-2010-2240 at MITRE

Description

The do_anonymous_page function in mm/memory.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.52, 2.6.32.x before 2.6.32.19, 2.6.34.x before 2.6.34.4, and 2.6.35.x before 2.6.35.2 does not properly separate the stack and the heap, which allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code by writing to the bottom page of a shared memory segment, as demonstrated by a memory-exhaustion attack against the X.Org X server.

Note from the SUSE Security Team

The SUSE Linux kernel in SUSE Linux Enterprise 9 and 11 and openSUSE contains a heap-stack gap patch which coincidently makes this problem not effective. This makes SUSE Linux Enterprise 9 and 11, and also openSUSE 11.1-11.3 not affected by this problem. SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP3 did not have this patch and has received updates.
