Description Petr Matousek 2013-11-18 09:29:50 EST
Commit 1f1ea6c (included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 as part of CVE-2012-2375 fix) accidently dropped the checking for too small result buffer length.
If someone uses getxattr on "system.nfs4_acl" on an NFSv4 mount supporting ACLs, the ACL has not been cached and the buffer suplied is too short, we still copy the complete ACL, resulting in kernel and user space memory corruption.
