Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> Subject: CVE request: kernel: validate size of EFI GUID partition entries The kernel automatically evaluates partition tables of storage devices. The code for evaluating GUID partitions (in fs/partitions/efi.c) contains a bug that can cause a kernel heap overflow on certain corrupted GUID partition tables. http://git.kernel.org/linus/fa039d5f6b126fbd65eefa05db2f67e44df8f121 http://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=703026 Thanks, Eugene
