CVE-2019-19053

A memory leak in the rpmsg_eptdev_write_iter() function in drivers/rpmsg/rpmsg_char.c in the Linux kernel through 5.3.11 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering copy_from_iter_full() failures

Comment 1 Takashi Iwai 2020-01-22 11:53:20 UTC
The fix is needed only after the code change to iter read/write, commit
ccf45b18ce89f598c69a0c945ced1635013fc0b1
    rpmsg: char: Migrate to iter versions of read and write
which was 4.20-rc1.

So only SLE15-SP2 needs the fix, and it was backported.

Reassigned back to security team.
