A vulnerability was found in Linux Kernel up to 6.2.7 (Operating System). It has been classified as critical. Affected is the function
ntfs_read_mft of the file fs/ntfs3/inode.c of the component Metadata Handler. The manipulation of the argument
MFT_REC_MFT with an unknown input leads to a use after free vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-416. Referencing memory after it has been freed can cause a program to crash, use unexpected values, or execute code. This is going to have an impact on confidentiality, integrity, and availability. CVE summarizes:
In the Linux kernel through 6.2.7, fs/ntfs3/inode.c has an invalid kfree because it does not validate MFT flags before replaying logs.
