Description Petr Matousek 2010-07-21 21:25:19 UTC
Description of problem:
1. CVE-2010-2537 - The BTRFS_IOC_CLONE and BTRFS_IOC_CLONE_RANGE ioctls should check whether the donor file is append-only before writing to it.

2. CVE-2010-2538 - The BTRFS_IOC_CLONE_RANGE ioctl appears to have an integer
overflow that allows a user to specify an out-of-bounds range to copy from the source file (if off + len wraps around).

Upstream commit:


The kernel in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 has support for Btrfs by default.

Comment 1 Petr Matousek 2010-07-21 21:25:46 UTC

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, 5 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG as they did not include support for Btrfs, a new copy on write filesystem.

Red Hat would like to thank Dan Rosenberg for responsibly reporting this issue.
