[PATCH 1/4] vdpa: Add features attr to vdpa_nl_policy for nlattr length check

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Lin Ma <linma@xxxxxxxxxx>

The vdpa_nl_policy structure is used to validate the nlattr when parsing
the incoming nlmsg. It will ensure the attribute being described produces
a valid nlattr pointer in info->attrs before entering into each handler
in vdpa_nl_ops.

That is to say, the missing part in vdpa_nl_policy may lead to illegal
nlattr after parsing, which could lead to OOB read just like CVE-2023-3773.

This patch adds the missing nla_policy for vdpa features attr to avoid
such bugs.
