CVE-2015-5156 (retired)

Priority
Description
The virtnet_probe function in drivers/net/virtio_net.c in the Linux kernel
before 4.2 attempts to support a FRAGLIST feature without proper memory
allocation, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service
(buffer overflow and memory corruption) via a crafted sequence of
fragmented packets.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that virtio networking in the Linux kernel did not handle
fragments correctly, leading to kernel memory corruption. A remote attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute code with administrative privileges.
Notes
