CVE-2017-16535

Published: 03 November 2017

The usb_get_bos_descriptor function in drivers/usb/core/config.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13.10 allows local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device.

From the Ubuntu security team

Andrey Konovalov discovered that the USB subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly validate USB BOS metadata. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).

Priority

Low

CVSS 3 base score: 6.6
