Centos Linux: CVE-2020-27749: Moderate: grub2 security update (CESA-2021:0696)

A flaw was found in grub2. Variable names present are expanded in the supplied command line into their corresponding variable contents, using a 1kB stack buffer for temporary storage, without sufficient bounds checking. If the function is called with a command line that references a variable with a sufficiently large payload, it is possible to overflow the stack buffer, corrupt the stack frame and control execution which could also circumvent Secure Boot protections. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality and integrity as well as system availability.

    Thanks for everything Templateism - You should have written the code a little more complicated
