An issue was discovered in IdeBusDxe in Insyde InsydeH2O 5.x. Code in system management mode calls a function outside of SMRAM in response to a crafted software SMI, aka Inclusion of Functionality from an Untrusted Control Sphere. Modifying the well-known address of this function allows an attacker to gain control of the system with the privileges of system management mode.
Insyde found that a number of SMM drivers in InsydeH2O did not correctly validate the CommBuffer and CommBufferSize parameters, allowing callers to corrupt either the firmware or the OS memory. The following drivers were affected by this vulnerability: 1. PnpSmm 2. SmmResourceCheckDxe 3. BeepStatusCode For these three, an updated version was made for Kernel 5.0 - Kernel 5.5 in the following versions: 05.08.23/05.16.23/05.26.23/05.35.23/05.43.23/05.51.23 4. AhciBusDxe 5. IdeBusDxe 6. NvmExpressDxe 7. SdHostDriverDxe 10. SdMmcDeviceDxe For these, an updated version was released in Kernel 5.1 - Kernel 5.5 in the following versions: 05.16.25,05.26.25,05.35.25,05.43.25,05.51.25
