# Exploit Title: Android Kernel 2.6 Local DoS
# Date: 12/7/12
# Author: G13
# Twitter: @g13net
# Versions: Android 2.2, 2.3
# Category: DoS (android)
#

##### Vulnerability #####

The Android OS is vulnerable to a local DoS when a filename with a
length of 2048
or larger is attempted to be written to the sdcard(vfat fs) multiple times.

The result of successful running of the exploit code is the system restarting.

The vulnerability only effects Android kernels that are in the version
2.6 family.

##### Vendor Timeline #####

The Android Security Team has been contacted with updated PoC code and
details.

They have been aware of this vulnerability for over a year.
