Vulnerability CVE-2019-15538


Published: 2019-08-25

Description:
An issue was discovered in xfs_setattr_nonsize in fs/xfs/xfs_iops.c in the Linux kernel through 5.2.9. XFS partially wedges when a chgrp fails on account of being out of disk quota. xfs_setattr_nonsize is failing to unlock the ILOCK after the xfs_qm_vop_chown_reserve call fails. This is primarily a local DoS attack vector, but it might result as well in remote DoS if the XFS filesystem is exported for instance via NFS.

Type:

CWE-399

(Resource Management Errors)

Vendor: Linux
Product: Linux kernel 
Version: 5.2.9;
