Vulnerability CVE-2017-9211


Published: 2017-05-23

Description:
The crypto_skcipher_init_tfm function in crypto/skcipher.c in the Linux kernel through 4.11.2 relies on a setkey function that lacks a key-size check, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via a crafted application.

Vendor: Linux
Product: Linux kernel 
Version: 4.11.2;
