Subject: [PATCH 3.12 101/181] Staging: rtl8188eu: overflow in update_sta_support_rate()

From: Dan Carpenter <>

3.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


commit 9dbd79aeb9842144d9a114a979a12c0949ee11eb upstream.

The ->SupportedRates[] array has NDIS_802_11_LENGTH_RATES_EX (16)
elements.  Since "ie_len" comes from then network and can go up to 255
then it means we should add a range check to prevent memory corruption.
