Vulnerability CVE-2017-8797


Published: 2017-07-02

Description:
The NFSv4 server in the Linux kernel before 4.11.3 does not properly validate the layout type when processing the NFSv4 pNFS GETDEVICEINFO or LAYOUTGET operand in a UDP packet from a remote attacker. This type value is uninitialized upon encountering certain error conditions. This value is used as an array index for dereferencing, which leads to an OOPS and eventually a DoS of knfsd and a soft-lockup of the whole system.

Type:

CWE-129

(Improper Validation of Array Index)

Vendor: Linux
Product: Linux kernel 
Version: 4.11.2;
