CVE-2017-18222 (retired)

Priority
Description
In the Linux kernel before 4.12, Hisilicon Network Subsystem (HNS) does not
consider the ETH_SS_PRIV_FLAGS case when retrieving sset_count data, which
allows local users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and memory
corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact, as demonstrated by
incompatibility between hns_get_sset_count and ethtool_get_strings.
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the Hisilicon HNS
Ethernet Device driver in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this
to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary
code.
