Description

The ext4_valid_block_bitmap function in fs/ext4/balloc.c in the Linux kernel through 4.15.15 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and system crash) via a crafted ext4 image because balloc.c and ialloc.c do not validate bitmap block numbers.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-kernel-default
  • suse-upgrade-kernel-ec2
  • suse-upgrade-kernel-ec2-devel
  • suse-upgrade-kernel-ec2-extra
