CVE-2020-11725

Priority
Description
** DISPUTED ** snd_ctl_elem_add in sound/core/control.c in the Linux kernel
through 5.6.3 has a count=info->owner line, which later affects a
private_size*count multiplication for unspecified "interesting side
effects." NOTE: kernel engineers dispute this finding, because it could be
relevant only if new callers were added that were unfamiliar with the
misuse of the info->owner field to represent data unrelated to the "owner"
concept. The existing callers, SNDRV_CTL_IOCTL_ELEM_ADD and
SNDRV_CTL_IOCTL_ELEM_REPLACE, have been designed to misuse the info->owner
field in a safe way.
Notes
cascardoThis issue is disputed by upstream, info->owner is used
intentionally for that specific API.
