VMware kernel skfp_ioctl function vulnerability

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:8685

The skfp_ioctl function in drivers/net/skfp/skfddi.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28.6 permits SKFP_CLR_STATS requests only when the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability is absent instead of when this capability is present which allows local users to reset the driver statistics related to an "inverted logic" issue.
