Description Rohit Keshri 2024-02-27 19:21:24 UTC
In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

netfilter: nft_limit: avoid possible divide error in nft_limit_init

div_u64() divides u64 by u32.

nft_limit_init() wants to divide u64 by u64, use the appropriate
math function (div64_u64)

Comment 12 Alex 2024-06-09 17:03:15 UTC
The result of automatic check (that is developed by Alexander Larkin) for this CVE-2021-46915 is: CHECK	Maybe valid. Check manually. with impact LOW (that is an approximation based on flags REMOTE KASAN INIT NETFILTER  ; these flags parsed automatically based on patch data). Such automatic check happens only for Low/Moderates (and only when not from reporter, but parsing already existing CVE). Highs always checked manually (I check it myself and then we check it again in Remediation team). In rare cases some of the Moderates could be increased to High later.
