The __driver_rfc4106_decrypt function in
arch/x86/crypto/aesni-intel_glue.c in the Linux kernel before 3.19.3
does not properly determine the memory locations used for encrypted
data, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of
service (buffer overflow and system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code by triggering a crypto API call, as demonstrated by use
of a libkcapi test program with an AF_ALG(aead) socket.
