In case a conditional jump is followed by a long jump, conditional jump target is one byte past the start of target instruction. A user/program could use this flaw to crash the kernel resulting in DoS, or potentially escalate user privileges on a system to gain root access. Upstream fix: ------------- -> https://git.kernel.org/linus/a03ffcf873fe0f2565386ca8ef832144c42e67fa Introduced by: -------------- -> https://git.kernel.org/linus/0a14842f5a3c0e88a1e59fac5c3025db39721f74 Note: BPF JIT is disabled by default, must be enabled by the admin. Thank you. -- Prasad J Pandit / Red Hat Security Response Team
