Thanks.

Where IV_SIZE is 8 and NONCE_SIZE is 4.

And iv is 16 bytes, so it's not a buffer overflow.

But priv.ctr.nonce is 4 bytes, and at the end of the struct, so it reads
4 bytes past the end of the nx_crypto_ctx, which is not good.

But then immediately overwrites whatever it read with req->iv.

So seems pretty harmless in practice?

cheers
