Linux Kernel Function Packet Handling Remote Buffer Overflow
High Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 801970
SynopsisThe host is using a Linux kernel which is vulnerable to a buffer overflow attack.
DescriptionLinux Kernel contains an overflow condition in the usbip_recv_xbuff() function in drivers/usb/usbip/usbip_common.c. The issue is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly validated when handling a crafted packet. This may allow a remote attacker to cause a buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code.
SolutionUpgrade to Linux kernel 4.5.2-1 or later.
