CVE-2021-38203

Published: 8 August 2021

btrfs in the Linux kernel before 5.13.4 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (deadlock) via processes that trigger allocation of new system chunks during times when there is a shortage of free space in the system space_info.

From the Ubuntu security team

Naohiro Aota discovered that the btrfs file system in the Linux kernel contained a race condition in situations that triggered allocations of new system chunks. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (deadlock).

Priority
