Subject: Re: a number of CVEs for issues in the filesystem's code in the
 Linux kernel


It appeared that there is another reproducer for CVE-2018-1092 ("kernel:
NULL pointer dereference in ext4/mballoc.c:ext4_process_freed_data() when
mounting crafted ext4 image") which possibly affects a wider range of
systems (than a previous one):

It was verified that a crash caused by this reproducer (88.img) is fixed
by the same upstream commit 8e4b5eae5decd.
