Vulnerability CVE-2018-5332


Published: 2018-01-11

Description:
In the Linux kernel through 4.14.13, the rds_message_alloc_sgs() function does not validate a value that is used during DMA page allocation, leading to a heap-based out-of-bounds write (related to the rds_rdma_extra_size function in net/rds/rdma.c).

Type:

CWE-787

Vendor: Linux
Product: Linux kernel 
Version: 4.14.13;
