[PATCH 2/2] Ensure num_actions is not a negative

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


From: Joao Moreira <joao.moreira@xxxxxxxxx>

In nft_flow_rule_create function, num_actions is a signed integer. Yet,
it is processed within a loop which increments its value. To prevent an
overflow from occurring, check if num_actions is not only equal to 0,
but also not negative.

After checking with maintainers, it was mentioned that front-end will
cap the num_actions vlaue and that it is not possible to reach such
condition for an overflow. Yet, for correctness, it is still better to
fix this.
