[PATCH net v2] sctp: fix a potential buffer overflow in sctp_sched_set_sched()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


The 'sched' index value must be checked before accessing an element
of the 'sctp_sched_ops' array. Otherwise, it can lead to buffer overflow.

Note that it's harmless since the 'sched' parameter is checked before
calling 'sctp_sched_set_sched'.

Found by InfoTeCS on behalf of Linux Verification Center
(linuxtesting.org) with SVACE.
