[PATCH] apparmor: enforce nullbyte at end of tag string

From: Jann Horn
Date: Tue May 28 2019 - 11:36:18 EST

A packed AppArmor policy contains null-terminated tag strings that are read
by unpack_nameX(). However, unpack_nameX() uses string functions on them
without ensuring that they are actually null-terminated, potentially
leading to out-of-bounds accesses.

Make sure that the tag string is null-terminated before passing it to

Warning: The existence of this bug has not been verified at runtime, and
the patch is compile-tested only. I noticed this while browsing through
the code, but didn't want to spend the time necessary to figure out how
to actually test this at runtime.
