[PATCH 4.4 075/105] xfrm: Ignore socket policies when rebuilding hash tables

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sun Jul 01 2018 - 12:19:22 EST

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


From: Tobias Brunner <tobias@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 6916fb3b10b3cbe3b1f9f5b680675f53e4e299eb upstream.

Whenever thresholds are changed the hash tables are rebuilt. This is
done by enumerating all policies and hashing and inserting them into
the right table according to the thresholds and direction.

Because socket policies are also contained in net->xfrm.policy_all but
no hash tables are defined for their direction (dir + XFRM_POLICY_MAX)
this causes a NULL or invalid pointer dereference after returning from
policy_hash_bysel() if the rebuild is done while any socket policies
are installed.

Since the rebuild after changing thresholds is scheduled this crash
could even occur if the userland sets thresholds seemingly before
installing any socket policies.

Fixes: 53c2e285f970 ("xfrm: Do not hash socket policies")
