[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 4/4] verify_pefile: relax wrapper length check

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


From: Robbie Harwood <rharwood@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 4fc5c74dde69a7eda172514aaeb5a7df3600adb3 ]

The PE Format Specification (section "The Attribute Certificate Table
(Image Only)") states that `dwLength` is to be rounded up to 8-byte
alignment when used for traversal.  Therefore, the field is not required
to be an 8-byte multiple in the first place.

Accordingly, pesign has not performed this alignment since version
0.110.  This causes kexec failure on pesign'd binaries with "PEFILE:
Signature wrapper len wrong".  Update the comment and relax the check.
