    Sebastian Krahmer discovered that udev did not correctly validate netlink
    message senders.  A local attacker could send specially crafted messages
    to udev in order to gain root privileges. (CVE-2009-1185)
    
    Sebastian Krahmer discovered a buffer overflow in the path encoding routines
    in udev.  A local attacker could exploit this to crash udev, leading to a
    denial of service. (CVE-2009-1186)
