Arbitrary code execution in Linux kernel
CVE-2012-2319

Buffer overflow

The vulnerability allows a local attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The weakness exists due to buffer overflow in the driver within HFS plus filesystem. By using a specially crafted Hierarchical File System (HFS) filesystem, a local attacker can trigger memory corruption and execute arbitrary code with system privileges.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in arbitrary code execution on the vulnerable system.

Note: the vulnerability was being actively exploited.
