Subject: [PATCH][next] fs/ntfs3: Fix integer overflow in multiplication
Date: Mon, 16 Aug 2021 17:30:25 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

From: Colin Ian King <>

The multiplication of the u32 data_size with a int is being performed
using 32 bit arithmetic however the results is being assigned to the
variable nbits that is a size_t (64 bit) value. Fix a potential
integer overflow by casting the u32 value to a size_t before the
multiply to use a size_t sized bit multiply operation.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Unintentional integer overflow")
Fixes: 82cae269cfa9 ("fs/ntfs3: Add initialization of super block")
