Fixed In Version: kernel 4.18-rc1
Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
An out of bounds memory read flaw was found in the Linux kernel’s implementation of the eBPF code verifier. A user passing corrupted data to a helper function could access data inside the adjust_ptr_min_max_vals() function. By default, the eBPF verifier is only accessible to users with CAP_SYS_ADMIN privileges. The lack of proper validation of user-supplied eBPF programs prior to execution is the cause of this issue which could lead to a local user's ability to crash the system or possibly escalate their privileges on the system.

Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-09-10 16:55:08 UTC
In skb_headlen of /include/linux/skbuff.h, there is a possible out of bounds read due to memory corruption. This could lead to local escalation of privilege with no additional execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation.Product: AndroidVersions: Android kernelAndroid ID: A-153881554
