Description

Integer overflow in the rds_rdma_pages function in net/rds/rdma.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted iovec struct in a Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) request, which triggers a buffer overflow.

Solution(s)

  • vmware-esx40-upgrade-480973
  • vmware-esx41-upgrade-502767
