Subject[PATCH 4.18 131/235] USB: yurex: Fix buffer over-read in yurex_write()
Date
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Ben Hutchings <ben.hutchings@codethink.co.uk>

commit 7e10f14ebface44a48275c8d6dc1caae3668d5a9 upstream.

If the written data starts with a digit, yurex_write() tries to parse
it as an integer using simple_strtoull(). This requires a null-
terminator, and currently there's no guarantee that there is one.

(The sample program at
https://github.com/NeoCat/YUREX-driver-for-Linux/blob/master/sample/yurex_clock.pl
writes an integer without a null terminator. It seems like it must
have worked by chance!)

Always add a null byte after the written data. Enlarge the buffer
to allow for this.
