[PATCH v2] sctp: prevent reading out-of-bounds memory

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Two user-controlled allocations in SCTP are subsequently dereferenced
as sockaddr structs, without checking if the dereferenced struct
members fall beyond the end of the allocated chunk.  There doesn't
appear to be any information leakage here based on how these members
are used and additional checking, but it's still worth fixing.
