Commit ef14f0c1578dce4b688726eb2603e50b62d6665a introduced an integer
overflow in the ACL handling code, which could further lead to
heap-based buffer overflow via a crafted filesystem.
Both commits are needed to fix the vulnerability.
The vulnerability seems to first appear in 2.6.32-rc1. 3.2 contains
only the first commit.
Do you need a CVE for this?
I apologize, I'm still getting used to Thunderbird (Vince says I should
use mutt, I suspect he may be correct) which places the subject line
well above the message body so when I scan it I'm usually looking at the
To: and CC: line and not seeing the subject (as evidenced by me asking
stupid questions like this about once a day =).
Please use CVE-2012-0038 for this kernel issue.
