[PATCH 6.6 278/301] net: fix out-of-bounds access in ops_init

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


6.6-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo <cascardo@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit a26ff37e624d12e28077e5b24d2b264f62764ad6 upstream.

net_alloc_generic is called by net_alloc, which is called without any
locking. It reads max_gen_ptrs, which is changed under pernet_ops_rwsem. It
is read twice, first to allocate an array, then to set s.len, which is
later used to limit the bounds of the array access.

It is possible that the array is allocated and another thread is
registering a new pernet ops, increments max_gen_ptrs, which is then used
to set s.len with a larger than allocated length for the variable array.

Fix it by reading max_gen_ptrs only once in net_alloc_generic. If
max_gen_ptrs is later incremented, it will be caught in net_assign_generic.
