CVE-2018-15471 (retired)

Priority
Description
An issue was discovered in xenvif_set_hash_mapping in
drivers/net/xen-netback/hash.c in the Linux kernel through 4.18.1, as used
in Xen through 4.11.x and other products. The Linux netback driver allows
frontends to control mapping of requests to request queues. When processing
a request to set or change this mapping, some input validation (e.g., for
an integer overflow) was missing or flawed, leading to OOB access in hash
handling. A malicious or buggy frontend may cause the (usually privileged)
backend to make out of bounds memory accesses, potentially resulting in one
or more of privilege escalation, Denial of Service (DoS), or information
leaks.
Ubuntu-Description
Felix Wilhelm discovered that the Xen netback driver in the Linux kernel
did not properly perform input validation in some situations. An attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code.
