Subject[PATCH 4.14 135/267] tty: vt: keyboard: reject invalid keycodes
From: Dmitry Torokhov <>

commit b2b2dd71e0859436d4e05b2f61f86140250ed3f8 upstream.

Do not try to handle keycodes that are too big, otherwise we risk doing
out-of-bounds writes:

In this case we were dealing with a fuzzed HID device that declared over
12K buttons, and while HID layer should not be reporting to us such big
keycodes, we should also be defensive and reject invalid data ourselves as
