CVE-2019-19047

MEDIUM
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

A memory leak in the mlx5_fw_fatal_reporter_dump() function in drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/health.c in the Linux kernel before 5.3.11 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering mlx5_crdump_collect() failures, aka CID-c7ed6d0183d5.
