CVE-2019-18809

Published: 07 November 2019

A memory leak in the af9005_identify_state() function in drivers/media/usb/dvb-usb/af9005.c in the Linux kernel through 5.3.9 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption), aka CID-2289adbfa559.

From the Ubuntu security team

It was discovered that the Afatech AF9005 DVB-T USB device driver in the Linux kernel did not properly deallocate memory in certain error conditions. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (kernel memory exhaustion).

Priority

Low
