Created: Mar 30, 2015    Updated: Dec 19, 2017
Resolved Date: Jul 17, 2015
Found In Version: 5.0.1
Fix Version: 5.0.1.29

Description

The implementation of certain splice_write file operations in the Linux kernel before 3.16 does not enforce a restriction on the maximum size of a single file, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted splice system call, as demonstrated by use of a file descriptor associated with an ext4 filesystem.
