Subject: CVE-2021-47175: net/sched: fq_pie: fix OOB access in the traffic path


In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

net/sched: fq_pie: fix OOB access in the traffic path

the following script:

  # tc qdisc add dev eth0 handle 0x1 root fq_pie flows 2
  # tc qdisc add dev eth0 clsact
  # tc filter add dev eth0 egress matchall action skbedit priority 0x10002
  # ping -I eth0 -c2 -w1 -q

produces the following splat:

The Linux kernel CVE team recommends that you update to the latest
stable kernel version for this, and many other bugfixes.  Individual
changes are never tested alone, but rather are part of a larger kernel
release.  Cherry-picking individual commits is not recommended or
supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
issue can be found at these commits:
