Description

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: afs: Increase buffer size in afs_update_volume_status() The max length of volume->vid value is 20 characters. So increase idbuf[] size up to 24 to avoid overflow. Found by Linux Verification Center (linuxtesting.org) with SVACE. [DH: Actually, it's 20 + NUL, so increase it to 24 and use snprintf()]
