Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> Subject: CVE Request -- kernel: ext4: kernel panic when writing data to the last block of sparse file If an extent exists which includes the block right before the maximum file offset, and the block for the maximum file offset is written, the kernel panics. For 4KB block size, the problem only occurs on x86_64 architecture. For 1KB or 2KB block size, the problem occurs on both i386 and x86_64. Local unprivileged users can use this flaw to crash the system when ext4 filesystem is in use. Upstream fix: f17722f917b2f21497deb6edc62fb1683daa08e6 References: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=722557 http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-ext4/msg25697.html Thanks, -- Petr Matousek / Red Hat Security Response Team
