be exploited by malicious, local users to cause a DoS (Denial of Service). =
The security issue is caused due to an error within the handling of certain=
 VFAT IOCTLs on 64bit systems, which can be exploited to crash the kernel b=
y calling certain IOCTLs with malicious parameters. Successful exploitation=
 requires a 64bit-system and vfat and msdos file systems.</desc>
