I haven't committed the patch yet since the Linux staging tree may
seem special. It's not clear to me where to submit the patch. So could
you please fix it?

Regards and thanks for your confirmation,

Here are the fixes and the contents of the patch file we suggest.

[PATCH]staging: rtl8723bs: prevent ->ssid overflow in rtw_wx_set_scan()

This fixing patch is ported from the upstream commit
74b6b20df8cf(staging: rtl8188eu: prevent ->ssid overflow in
rtw_wx_set_scan()) which fixes on another driver numbered rtl8188eu.
This code has a check to prevent read overflow but it needs another
check to prevent writing beyond the end of the ->ssid[] array in
driver rtl8723bs.

Hi,

This is the friendly patch-bot of Greg Kroah-Hartman.  You have sent him
a patch that has triggered this response.  He used to manually respond
to these common problems, but in order to save his sanity (he kept
writing the same thing over and over, yet to different people), I was
created.  Hopefully you will not take offence and will fix the problem
in your patch and resubmit it so that it can be accepted into the Linux
kernel tree.

You are receiving this message because of the following common error(s)
as indicated below:

- Your patch is malformed (tabs converted to spaces, linewrapped, etc.)
  and can not be applied.  Please read the file,
  Documentation/email-clients.txt in order to fix this.

- Your patch does not have a Signed-off-by: line.  Please read the
  kernel file, Documentation/SubmittingPatches and resend it after
  adding that line.  Note, the line needs to be in the body of the
  email, before the patch, not at the bottom of the patch or in the
  email signature.

- You did not specify a description of why the patch is needed, or
  possibly, any description at all, in the email body.  Please read the
  section entitled "The canonical patch format" in the kernel file,
  Documentation/SubmittingPatches for what is needed in order to
  properly describe the change.

- You did not write a descriptive Subject: for the patch, allowing Greg,
  and everyone else, to know what this patch is all about.  Please read
  the section entitled "The canonical patch format" in the kernel file,
  Documentation/SubmittingPatches for what a proper Subject: line should
  look like.

- It looks like you did not use your "real" name for the patch on either
  the Signed-off-by: line, or the From: line (both of which have to
  match).  Please read the kernel file, Documentation/SubmittingPatches
  for how to do this correctly.

If you wish to discuss this problem further, or you have questions about
how to resolve this issue, please feel free to respond to this email and
Greg will reply once he has dug out from the pending patches received
from other developers.

thanks,

greg k-h's patch email bot

the patch looks fine. Just some points:

- If the patch related to wext support removal will
  be accepted, the patch isn't necessary. So I will wait
  until I know the community-maintainer decision.

- The driver rtl8188eu is deprecated. Now exists r8188eu which has
  the same security bug, so it needs to be fixed. Again feel free
  to submit your own patch.

- If you decide to submit your own patch I suggest to put
  your full name in the email address as you submitted a legal
  document.

- The driver rtl8188eu is deprecated. Now exists r8188eu which has
  the same security bug, so it needs to be fixed. Again feel free

- If you decide to submit your own patch I suggest to put
  your full name in the email address as you submitted a legal
  document.

OK, I see the situation now, and I will submit a relevant patch to the
