The ROSE protocol implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.39
does not verify that certain data-length values are consistent with
the amount of data sent, which might allow remote attackers to obtain
sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service
(out-of-bounds read) via crafted data to a ROSE socket.
