Fixed In Version: grub 2.06
Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
A flaw was found in grub2. Variable names present are expanded in the supplied command line into their corresponding variable contents, using a 1kB stack buffer for temporary storage, without sufficient bounds checking. If the function is called with a command line that references a variable with a sufficiently large payload, it is possible to overflow the stack buffer, corrupt the stack frame and control execution which could also circumvent Secure Boot protections. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality and integrity as well as system availability.

Description Marco Benatto 2020-11-20 13:39:58 UTC
grub_parser_split_cmdline expands variable names present in the supplied command line in to their corresponding variable contents and uses a 1kB
stack buffer for temporary storage without sufficient bounds checking. If the function is called with a command line that references a variable with a sufficiently large payload, it is possible to overflow the stack buffer, corrupt the stack frame and control execution. An attacker may use this to circumvent Secure Boot protections.
