Description Petr Matousek 2012-07-25 17:15:13 UTC
Description of problem:

A specially-crafted UDF filesystem could cause buffer overflow when parsing sparing tables in udf_load_logicalvol()@fs/udf/super.c.

The bug is fixed in upstream kernel via the following commits:


commit 1df2ae31c724e57be9d7ac00d78db8a5dabdd050
Author: Jan Kara <jack () suse cz>
Date:   Wed Jun 27 21:23:07 2012 +0200

    udf: Fortify loading of sparing table

    Add sanity checks when loading sparing table from disk to avoid accessing
    unallocated memory or writing to it.

and

commit adee11b2085bee90bd8f4f52123ffb07882d6256
Author: Jan Kara <jack () suse cz>
Date:   Wed Jun 27 20:20:22 2012 +0200

    udf: Avoid run away loop when partition table length is corrupted
    
    Check provided length of partition table so that (possibly maliciously)
    corrupted partition table cannot cause accessing data beyond current buffer.
