Description Pedro Sampaio 2019-08-29 23:56:29 UTC
In the Linux kernel before 5.1.13, there is a memory leak in drivers/scsi/libsas/sas_expander.c when SAS expander discovery fails. This will cause a BUG and denial of service.

Upstream patch:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=3b0541791453fbe7f42867e310e0c9eb6295364d

Comment 1 Pedro Sampaio 2019-08-29 23:56:46 UTC
Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1747217]

Comment 2 Justin M. Forbes 2019-08-30 12:16:52 UTC
This was fixed for Fedora with the 5.1.13 stable update

Comment 5 Petr Matousek 2020-04-30 16:29:35 UTC
Statement:

This issue is rated as having Low impact because of the preconditions needed to trigger the error/resource cleanup code path (system-wide out-of-memory condition, high privileges or physical access).

Comment 6 Petr Matousek 2020-04-30 16:29:39 UTC
Mitigation:

Mitigation for this issue is either not available or the currently available options don't meet the Red Hat Product Security criteria comprising ease of use and deployment, applicability to widespread installation base or stability.
