Description tp 2008-04-08 06:48:26 UTC
Hi,

the code from rose_sendmsg in sys/net/af_rose.c doesn't check the value of len. 
suppose len is very big (0xfffffff8 for example) then "size" would overflow.

        size = len + AX25_BPQ_HEADER_LEN + AX25_MAX_HEADER_LEN + ROSE_MIN_LEN;

resulting in a buffer that's too small.

if ((skb = sock_alloc_send_skb(sk, size, msg->msg_flags & MSG_DONTWAIT, &err)) == NULL)
                return err;

the buffer is filled here:

1115         skb_put(skb, len);
1116 
1117         err = memcpy_fromiovec(skb_transport_header(skb), msg->msg_iov, len);


Regards,
Thomas Pollet

It might be that it doesn't need to check.  We check that the total length
didn't overflow negative in sys_sendmsg()'s call to verify_iovec().

Of course, the addition which you identify might make a very large length
overflow 0x7fffffff, and subsequent code might handle that incorrectly.

I believe that if sock_alloc_send_skb() is called with a wrapped size, it might actually create a larger buffer than necessary.
