Vulnerabilities > CVE-2023-6121 - Out-of-bounds Read vulnerability in Redhat Enterprise Linux
An out-of-bounds read vulnerability was found in the NVMe-oF/TCP subsystem in the Linux kernel. This flaw allows a remote attacker to send a crafted TCP packet, triggering a heap-based buffer overflow that results in kmalloc data to be printed (and potentially leaked) to the kernel ring buffer (dmesg).
Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE)
Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (CAPEC)
- Overread Buffers An adversary attacks a target by providing input that causes an application to read beyond the boundary of a defined buffer. This typically occurs when a value influencing where to start or stop reading is set to reflect positions outside of the valid memory location of the buffer. This type of attack may result in exposure of sensitive information, a system crash, or arbitrary code execution.
