SubjectRe: [PATCH v4] firmware: google: check if size is valid when decoding VPD data
Quoting Hung-Te Lin (2019-08-29 19:23:58)
> The VPD implementation from Chromium Vital Product Data project used to
> parse data from untrusted input without checking if the meta data is
> invalid or corrupted. For example, the size from decoded content may
> be negative value, or larger than whole input buffer. Such invalid data
> may cause buffer overflow.
> To fix that, the size parameters passed to vpd_decode functions should
> be changed to unsigned integer (u32) type, and the parsing of entry
> header should be refactored so every size field is correctly verified
> before starting to decode.
> Fixes: ad2ac9d5c5e0 ("firmware: Google VPD: import lib_vpd source files")
