Vulnerability CVE-2017-14340


Published: 2017-09-15

Description:
The XFS_IS_REALTIME_INODE macro in fs/xfs/xfs_linux.h in the Linux kernel before 4.13.2 does not verify that a filesystem has a realtime device, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via vectors related to setting an RHINHERIT flag on a directory.

Type:

CWE-476

(NULL Pointer Dereference)

Vendor: Linux
Product: Linux kernel 
Version: 4.13.1;

CVSS2 => (AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:C)
