CVE-2022-34918

Description

A heap buffer overflow flaw was found in the Linux kernel’s Netfilter subsystem in the way a user provides incorrect input of the NFT_DATA_VERDICT type. This flaw allows a local user to crash or potentially escalate their privileges on the system. #### Mitigation In order to trigger the issue, it requires the ability to create user/net namespaces. On non-containerized deployments of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you can disable user namespaces by setting user.max_user_namespaces to 0: # echo "user.max_user_namespaces=0" > /etc/sysctl.d/userns.conf # sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.d/userns.conf On containerized deployments, such as Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, do not use this mitigation as the functionality is needed to be enabled.
