A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's freescale hypervisor manager implementation. A parameter passed to an ioctl was incorrectly validated and used in size calculations for the page size calculation. An attacker can use this flaw to crash the system, corrupt memory, or create other adverse security affects.

Description Marian Rehak 2019-05-17 07:52:36 UTC
A flaw was found in the Linux kernels freescale hypervisor manager implementation.  A parameter passed via to an ioctl was incorrectly validated and used in size calculations for page size calculation, 

The "param.count" value is a u64 from the user. The code later assumes that param.count is at least one, leading to ZERO_SIZE_PTR dereference in case it is not. Also the addition can have an integer overflow which leads to allocating fewer "pages" array than required.
