LIN10-4856 : Security Advisory - linux - CVE-2018-5848

Created: Oct 29, 2018    Updated: Dec 16, 2018
Resolved Date: Nov 8, 2018
Found In Version: 10.17.41.1
Fix Version: 10.17.41.13
Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux LTS 17
Component/s: Kernel

Description

In the function wmi_set_ie() in the Linux kernel the length validation code does not handle unsigned integer overflow properly. As a result, a large value of the ‘ie_len’ argument can cause a buffer overflow and thus a memory corruption leading to a system crash or other or unspecified impact. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although we believe it is unlikely.
