* CVE-2010-3848: Privilege escalation in Econet with large iovecs.
The sendmsg implementation in the Econet protocol could overflow the
kernel stack on a message with a large iovec array, potentially leading to
* CVE-2010-3850: Privilege escalation in Econet SIOCSIFADDR operation.
The SIOCSIFADDR operation in the Econet protocol failed to check that the
caller is privileged.
* CVE-2010-3849: Denial of service in Econet sendmsg.
When given a NULL remote address, the sendmsg implementation in the Econet
protocol could dereference a NULL pointer, leading to a kernel oops.
