CVE-2018-14615

Published: 27 July 2018

An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel through 4.17.10. There is a buffer overflow in truncate_inline_inode() in fs/f2fs/inline.c when umounting an f2fs image, because a length value may be negative.

From the Ubuntu Security Team

Wen Xu discovered that the f2fs file system implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate metadata. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious f2fs image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash).

f2fs tree fix w/commit "f2fs: fix to do sanity check with
i_extra_isize"
tyhicks
The affected user base for this issue is likely small since f2fs is
not the default filesystem and it is not widely used in Ubuntu
