Sentence in DSA 1479 proper English?

I try to translate DSA 1479 into German and fail to understand the
following sentence:

ADLAB discovered a possible memory overrun in the ISDN subsystem that
may permit a local user to overwrite kernel memory leading by issuing
ioctls with unterminated data.

Is "may permit [someone] leading by issuing [something]" proper
English? If so, could you explain in different words what "to lead by"
means (I haven't found it in my dictionaries).
