A specifically crafted request can extract chunks of arbitrary memory from both kernel-space and user-space. The attack vector requires write access to a NFS mount on the target host. The issue has been verified to be reproducible on multiple baselines. At least 2.6.32, 3.2, 4.4, 4.8 and 4.10 baselines (and distributions derived from those) have been confirmed to be vulnerable. Fixed in 4.11 release. Most probably this has been introduced about 10 years ago due to fs/nfsd changes for 2.6.22. CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:N/A:N (7.7 / High) Upstream patch: https://git.kernel.org/linus/13bf9fbff0e5e099e2b6f003a0ab8ae145436309 This issue was found by Ari Kauppi from Synopsys Ltd with Synopsys Defensics fuzzer combined with KASAN. Thanks, -- Ari Kauppi / Synopsys Ltd.
