Doc Text:
A denial of service (DoS) was found in the write_tpt_entry in drivers/infiniband/hw/cxgb4/mem.c in the cxgb4' Chelsio T4/T5 RDMA Driver. Some of the architectures performing the DMA operation directly from the stack variable (instead of the heap) allows an attacker in the network to cause some security threat.

Description Dhananjay Arunesh 2019-10-09 04:08:14 UTC
An issue was discovered in write_tpt_entry in drivers/infiniband/hw/cxgb4/mem.c in the Linux kernel. The cxgb4 driver is directly calling dma_map_single (a DMA function) from a stack variable. This could allow an attacker to trigger a Denial of Service, exploitable if this driver is used on an architecture for which this stack/DMA interaction has security relevance.


Comment 1 Dhananjay Arunesh 2019-10-09 04:09:04 UTC
Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1759768]

Comment 2 Justin M. Forbes 2020-03-19 16:59:07 UTC
This was fixed for Fedora with the 5.3.8 stable kernel updates.

Comment 4 Rohit Keshri 2020-04-02 07:29:46 UTC

Mitigation for this issue is either not available or the currently available options don't meet the Red Hat Product Security criteria comprising ease of use and deployment, applicability to widespread installation base or stability.
