Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The NFS2/3 RPC client could send long arguments to the NFS server. These encoded arguments are stored in an array of memory pages, and accessed using pointer variables. Arbitrarily long arguments could make these pointers point outside the array and cause an out-of-bounds memory access. A remote user or program could use this flaw to crash the kernel, resulting in denial of service.

Description Andrej Nemec 2017-04-19 14:45:10 UTC
The Linux kernel built with the NFS Server Support(CONFIG_NFSD) is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds memory access issue. It could occur while processing arbitrarily long arguments sent by the NFSv2/NFSv3 PRC clients.

A remote RPC user/program could use this flaw to crash the krenel, resulting in DoS.
