LIN1021-396 : Security Advisory - linux - CVE-2021-33200

Fix Version:
Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux LTS 21
Component/s: Kernel


kernel/bpf/verifier.c in the Linux kernel through 5.12.7 enforces incorrect limits for pointer arithmetic operations, aka CID-bb01a1bba579. This can be abused to perform out-of-bounds reads and writes in kernel memory, leading to local privilege escalation to root. In particular, there is a corner case where the off reg causes a masking direction change, which then results in an incorrect final aux->alu_limit.
