Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
It was found that the blk_rq_map_user_iov() function in the Linux kernel's block device implementation did not properly restrict the type of iterator, which could allow a local attacker to read or write to arbitrary kernel memory locations or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging write access to a /dev/sg device.

Comment 1 Adam Mariš 2016-12-09 08:42:13 UTC
Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1403146]

Comment 8 Vladis Dronov 2017-01-19 15:22:47 UTC
Statement:

This issue does not affect the Linux kernel packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 as the code which can trigger the flaw is not present in the products listed.

This issue affects the Linux kernel packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, 7 and MRG-2. Future Linux kernel updates for the respective releases might address this issue.
