Doc Text:
The fs/ext4/inline.c:ext4_read_inline_data() function in the Linux kernel performs a memcpy with an untrusted length value in certain circumstances involving a crafted filesystem that stores the system.data extended attribute value in a dedicated inode. The unbound copy can cause memory corruption or possible privilege escalation.
