[Trusty][Xenial][Zesty][Artful][PATCH 0/1] CVE-2017-17449

Khalid Elmously
CVE-2017-17449


The __netlink_deliver_tap_skb function in net/netlink/af_netlink.c in the
Linux kernel through 4.14.4, when CONFIG_NLMON is enabled, does not
restrict observations of Netlink messages to a single net namespace, which
allows local users to obtain sensitive information by leveraging the
CAP_NET_ADMIN capability to sniff an nlmon interface for all Netlink
activity on the system.

(The patch will be fuzzed by a few lines for Trusty but should still apply cleanly)

(cherry-picked from upstream 93c647643b48f0131f02e45da3bd367d80443291)

[Xenial][Zesty][Artful][PATCH 1/1] netlink: Add netns check on taps

Khalid Elmously
From: Kevin Cernekee <[hidden email]>

Currently, a nlmon link inside a child namespace can observe systemwide
netlink activity.  Filter the traffic so that nlmon can only sniff
netlink messages from its own netns.

Test case:

    vpnns -- bash -c "ip link add nlmon0 type nlmon; \
                      ip link set nlmon0 up; \
                      tcpdump -i nlmon0 -q -w /tmp/nlmon.pcap -U" &
    sudo ip xfrm state add src 10.1.1.1 dst 10.1.1.2 proto esp \
        spi 0x1 mode transport \
        auth sha1 0x6162633132330000000000000000000000000000 \
        enc aes 0x00000000000000000000000000000000
    grep --binary abc123 /tmp/nlmon.pcap
