Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
An out-of-bounds (OOB) memory access flaw was found in net/core/filter.c in __bpf_skb_max_len in the Linux kernel. A missing sanity check to the current MTU check may allow a local attacker with special user privilege to gain access to out-of-bounds memory leading to a system crash or a leak of internal kernel information.

Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-10-28 14:04:25 UTC
An out-of-bounds (OOB) memory access flaw was found in net/core/filter.c in __bpf_skb_max_len in the Linux kernel. A missing sanity check to the current MTU check may allow a local attacker with special user privilege to gain access to out-of-bounds memory leading to a system crash or a leak of internal kernel information.
