Subject: [PATCH v2] rtw88: Fix out-of-bounds write
Date: Fri, 16 Jul 2021 17:53:11 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

In the rtw_pci_init_rx_ring function the "if (len > TRX_BD_IDX_MASK)"
statement guarantees that len is less than or equal to GENMASK(11, 0) or
in other words that len is less than or equal to 4095. However the
rx_ring->buf has a size of RTK_MAX_RX_DESC_NUM (defined as 512). This
way it is possible an out-of-bounds write in the for statement due to
the i variable can exceed the rx_ring->buff size.

However, this overflow never happens due to the rtw_pci_init_rx_ring is
only ever called with a fixed constant of RTK_MAX_RX_DESC_NUM. But it is
better to be defensive in this case and add a new check to avoid
overflows if this function is called in a future with a value greater
than 512.

Addresses-Coverity-ID: 1461515 ("Out-of-bounds write")
Fixes: e3037485c68ec ("rtw88: new Realtek 802.11ac driver")
Signed-off-by: Len Baker <>
Changelog v1 -> v2
- Remove the macro ARRAY_SIZE from the for loop (Pkshih, Brian Norris).
- Add a new check for the len variable (Pkshih, Brian Norris).
