Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 6
Component/s: Userspace


A common idiom in the codebase is:

if (p + len > limit)
	return; /* Too long */

where p points to some malloc'd data of SIZE bytes and limit == p + SIZE. 'len' could be from some externally supplied data, e.g. TLS message. This idiom is vulnerable to integer overflow vulnerability.
