Priority
Description
Memory leak in the hwsim_new_radio_nl function in
drivers/net/wireless/mac80211_hwsim.c in the Linux kernel through 4.15.9
allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by
triggering an out-of-array error case.

It was discovered that the 802.11 software simulator implementation in the
Linux kernel contained a memory leak when handling certain error
conditions. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of
service (memory exhaustion).
