Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> Subject: CVE request - kernel: drm: integer overflow in drm_mode_dirtyfb_ioctl() There is a potential integer overflow in drm_mode_dirtyfb_ioctl() if userspace passes in a large num_clips. The call to kmalloc would allocate a small buffer, and the call to fb->funcs->dirty may result in a memory corruption.
