CVE-2022-2078

Published: 30 June 2022

A vulnerability was found in the Linux kernel's nft_set_desc_concat_parse() function .This flaw allows an attacker to trigger a buffer overflow via nft_set_desc_concat_parse() , causing a denial of service and possibly to run code.

From the Ubuntu security team

It was discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel contained a buffer overflow in certain situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
