Published: 2017-05-26   Modified: 2017-05-27

Description:
The __ip6_append_data function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the Linux kernel through 4.11.3 is too late in checking whether an overwrite of an skb data structure may occur, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via crafted system calls.

Type:

CWE-20

(Improper Input Validation)

Vendor: Linux
Product: Linux kernel 
Version: 4.11.3;
