A vulnerability, which was classified as problematic, has been found in Linux Kernel up to 5.3.11 (Operating System). Affected by this issue is the function mwifiex_pcie_init_evt_ring of the file drivers/net/wireless/marvell/mwifiex/pcie.c. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a resource consumption vulnerability. Using CWE to declare the problem leads to CWE-400. The product does not properly control the allocation and maintenance of a limited resource, thereby enabling an actor to influence the amount of resources consumed, eventually leading to the exhaustion of available resources. Impacted is availability. CVE summarizes:

Two memory leaks in the mwifiex_pcie_init_evt_ring() function in drivers/net/wireless/marvell/mwifiex/pcie.c in the Linux kernel through 5.3.11 allow attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering mwifiex_map_pci_memory() failures, aka CID-d10dcb615c8e.

The weakness was shared 11/18/2019. This vulnerability is handled as CVE-2019-19057 since 11/18/2019. The exploitation is known to be easy. The attack may be launched remotely. No form of authentication is required for exploitation. Technical details are known, but there is no available exploit. The structure of the vulnerability defines a possible price range of USD $5k-$25k at the moment (estimation calculated on 02/23/2024). This vulnerability is assigned to T1499 by the MITRE ATT&CK project.

There is no information about possible countermeasures known. It may be suggested to replace the affected object with an alternative product.
