Lv2 sys_fs_mount stack overflow[edit]

Stack buffer overflow with required priveleges when passing a length greater than 10. It now checks for length less than or equal to 10. If larger than 10, the length gets set to 10.

Patched: sometime before 4.40 (only fw I checked)

RSX Syscall bug[edit]

In most syscalls sony reduces a pointer to 32 bits and would use a special function to write to that pointer.
however, in certain rsx syscalls, sony forgot about it, allowing the attacker to write to any part of lv2 memory.

Patched: 4.40
