Description msiddiqu 2020-03-31 10:24:57 UTC
A vulnerability was found in F2FS touch driver in kernel where there is a possible out of bounds
read due to improper input validation. This could lead to local information
disclosure with system execution privileges needed. User interaction is not
needed for exploitation.

Comment 1 msiddiqu 2020-03-31 10:25:47 UTC
Created kernel tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1819149]

Comment 2 Justin M. Forbes 2020-03-31 13:56:41 UTC
This was fixed for Fedora with the 5.1.12 stable kernel updates.

Comment 3 Alex 2020-04-08 11:36:31 UTC
For F2FS (file system) that is disabled for all rhel* versions,
the configuration param that is disabled:
"# CONFIG_F2FS_FS is not set"
