Subject: [PATCH v2] crypto: ccm - avoid negative wrapping of integers
Date: Mon, 26 Jul 2021 19:01:20 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Set csize to unsigned int to avoid it from wrapping as a negative number (since format input sends an unsigned integer to this function). This would also result in undefined behavior in the left shift when msg len is checked, potentially resulting in a buffer overflow in the memcpy call.

Signed-off-by: Jordy Zomer <>
To address was corrected, and ccm was added to the topic to indicate that this is just for ccm.
