Linux Kernel CVE-2017-7895 Multiple Security Bypass Vulnerabilities

Description: The NFSv2 and NFSv3 server implementations in the Linux kernel through 4.10.13 lacks certain checks for the end of a buffer, which allows remote attackers to trigger pointer-arithmetic errors or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted requests, related to fs/nfsd/nfs3xdr.c and fs/nfsd/nfsxdr.c.

Impact: Attackers can exploit these issues to bypass certain security restrictions and perform unauthorized actions. This may aid in further attacks.

Mitigation: Updates are available. Please check specific vendor advisory for more information.
