Description Adam Mariš 2017-04-25 13:48:38 UTC
drivers/char/virtio_console.c in the Linux kernel 4.9.x and 4.10.x
before 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.
