CVE-2023-6121: Kernel: nvme: info leak due to out-of-bounds read in nvmet_ctrl_find_get

First published: Thu Nov 16 2023(Updated: )

An out-of-bounds read issue was found in the NVMe-oF/TCP subsystem in the Linux kernel. A remote attacker could 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).
