Subject: ethtool: Fix potential kernel buffer overflow in ETHTOOL_GRXCLSRLALL
X-Git-Url: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux%2Fkernel%2Fgit%2Fdavem%2Fnet-2.6.git;a=commitdiff_plain;h=db048b69037e7fa6a7d9e95a1271a50dc08ae233

ethtool: Fix potential kernel buffer overflow in ETHTOOL_GRXCLSRLALL

On a 32-bit machine, info.rule_cnt >= 0x40000000 leads to integer
overflow and the buffer may be smaller than needed.  Since
ETHTOOL_GRXCLSRLALL is unprivileged, this can presumably be used for at
least denial of service.
