so the minimum requirement is to have an 1 octet packet indicator. If some other functions are missing length checks, then it should be fixed there. I see that in case of HCI_VENDOR_PKT we need to check for the 2nd octet to be present, but I have no idea why you require 3 octets minimum. As I said, if so, then the other functions that get called require proper range checks.

Regards

Marcel
