Date: Wed, 10 Nov 2010 10:27:46 -0500 (EST) From: Petr Matousek <pmatouse@...hat.com> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Cc: coley@...us.mitre.org Subject: CVE request: kernel: L2TP send buffer allocation size overflows "Both PPPoL2TP (in net/l2tp/l2tp_ppp.c, pppol2tp_sendmsg()) and IPoL2TP (in net/l2tp/l2tp_ip.c, l2tp_ip_sendmsg()) make calls to sock_wmalloc() that perform arithmetic on the size argument without any maximum bound. As a result, by issuing sendto() calls with very large sizes, this allocation size will wrap and result in a small buffer being allocated, leading to ugliness immediately after (probably kernel panics due to bad sk_buff tail position, but possibly kernel heap corruption)."
