CVE-2014-6417

Published: 28 September 2014

net/ceph/auth_x.c in Ceph, as used in the Linux kernel before 3.16.3, does not properly consider the possibility of kmalloc failure, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long unencrypted auth ticket.

From the Ubuntu Security Team

James Eckersall discovered a flaw in the handling of memory allocation failures in the Ceph filesystem. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact.
