Linux Kernel on 64-bit is prone to an overflow condition. The 'ioc_general' function in 'drivers/scsi/gdth.c' fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input resulting in an integer overflow. With a specially crafted overly large argument in an ioctl call, a local attacker can potentially cause a denial of service.
