Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-06-24 11:31:03 UTC
Linux kernel built with the Ceph core library(CONFIG_CEPH_LIB) support is
vulnerable to a NULL pointer dereference flaw. It could occur while handling
auth_reply messages from a CEPH client.

A remote user/program could use this flaw to crash the system, resulting in
denial of service.

That looks like it would work.  Do you plan on sending it upstream?

This is actually patch acked by ceph maintainer Sage Weil (and not written by me). I expect him to send it upstream.
