Description Marcel Holtmann 2006-03-22 14:50:48 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #186242 +++

It appears sockaddr_in.sin_zero is not zeroed during certain operations
returning IPv4 socket names, namely:

- getsockopt(...SO_ORIGINAL_DST...) (2.4 and 2.6)
  see getorigdst() in net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_conntrack_core.c
  (+ in net/ipv4/netfilter/nf_conntrack_l3proto_ipv4.c in 2.6?!)

- getsockname() and getpeername() (and accept()) (2.4 only)
  see inet_getname() in net/ipv4/af_inet.c

and several unitialized bytes of kernel stack (sizeof(sin_zero) == 6 to be
precise) leak to the userspace.

A patch has been included in Marcelo's 2.4 tree:;a=commit;h=09d3b3dcfa80c9094f1748c1be064b9326c9ef2b

Comment 2 Ernie Petrides 2006-03-27 22:38:16 UTC
Hi, Marcel.  Since RHEL-3 was only missing the memset() in getorigdst(),
which is the 2nd patch hunk of the upstream commit, I'd guess that only
one of the two CVE names are relevant.  Could you please update this bug's
subject line accordingly so that I'll know which one to list in the U8 advisory?

Thanks in advance.  -ernie

Comment 3 Ernie Petrides 2006-03-28 01:24:23 UTC
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U8
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-40.5.EL).

Comment 4 Ernie Petrides 2006-04-28 21:51:15 UTC
Adding a couple dozen bugs to CanFix list so I can complete the stupid advisory.
