Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> Subject: CVE request: kernel: fuse: prevent fuse_put_request on invalid pointer "fuse_direct_io() has a loop where requests are allocated in each iteration. if allocation fails, the loop is broken out and follows into an unconditional fuse_put_request() on that invalid pointer." Upstream commit: http://git.kernel.org/linus/f60311d5f7670d9539b424e4ed8b5c0872fc9e83 This can be triggered when the system is low on memory, and when the fuse_request_alloc() function called from fuse_get_req() fails. The fuse_put_request() function will then dereference the invalid pointer returned, resulting in a kernel oops. This was introduced in 413ef8cb (v2.6.14-rc1) and fixed in v2.6.32-rc7. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/538734 Thanks, Eugene
