Description Adam Mariš 2017-04-25 13:47:38 UTC
crypto/ccm.c in the Linux kernel 4.9.x and 4.10.x through 4.10.12
interacts incorrectly with the CONFIG_VMAP_STACK option, which allows
local users to cause a denial of service (system crash or memory
corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging
use of more than one virtual page for a DMA scatterlist.

Comment 2 Justin M. Forbes 2017-04-27 14:06:24 UTC
The commit that this patch fixes was not until 4.11-rc1, 4.9 and 4.10 both have idata/odata as part of pctx.  This bug never shipped in a released kernel, it was introduced in the 4.11 merge window and resolved in the merge window.
