Subject: CVE-2024-26675: ppp_async: limit MRU to 64K
Date: Tue,  2 Apr 2024 09:01:52 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <2024040252-CVE-2024-26675-5b19@gregkh> (raw)


In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

ppp_async: limit MRU to 64K

syzbot triggered a warning [1] in __alloc_pages():


Willem fixed a similar issue in commit c0a2a1b0d631 ("ppp: limit MRU to 64K")

Adopt the same sanity check for ppp_async_ioctl(PPPIOCSMRU)
