[PATCH net-next v5 7/7] netfilter: nf_conntrack: allow early drop of offloaded UDP conns

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


Both synchronous early drop algorithm and asynchronous gc worker completely
ignore connections with IPS_OFFLOAD_BIT status bit set. With new
functionality that enabled UDP NEW connection offload in action CT
malicious user can flood the conntrack table with offloaded UDP connections
by just sending a single packet per 5tuple because such connections can no
longer be deleted by early drop algorithm.

To mitigate the issue allow both early drop and gc to consider offloaded
UDP connections for deletion.
