3) Buffer overflow

EUVDB-ID: #VU51451

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-27365

CWE-ID: CWE-119 - Memory corruption

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to escalate privileges on the system.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error when processing Netlink messages in Linux kernel through 5.11.3, as certain iSCSI data structures do not have appropriate length constraints or checks, and can exceed the PAGE_SIZE value. A local unprivileged user can send a Netlink message that is associated with iSCSI, and has a length up to the maximum length of a Netlink message, trigger memory corruption and execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
