CVE-2014-6416

Published: 28 September 2014

Buffer overflow in net/ceph/auth_x.c in Ceph, as used in the Linux kernel before 3.16.3, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and panic) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long unencrypted auth ticket.

From the Ubuntu security team

James Eckersall discovered a buffer overflow in the Ceph filesystem in the Linux kernel. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and panic) or possibly have other unspecified impact via a long unencrypted auth ticket.
