netfilter: nfnetlink: correctly validate length of batch messages
If nlh->nlmsg_len is zero then an infinite loop is triggered because 'skb_pull(skb, msglen);' pulls zero bytes. The calculation in nlmsg_len() underflows if 'nlh->nlmsg_len < NLMSG_HDRLEN' which bypasses the length validation and will later trigger an out-of-bound read. If the length validation does fail then the malformed batch message is copied back to userspace. However, we cannot do this because the nlh->nlmsg_len can be invalid. This leads to an out-of-bounds read in netlink_ack: [ 41.455421] ================================================================== [ 41.456431] BUG: KASAN: slab-out-of-bounds in memcpy+0x1d/0x40 at addr ffff880119e79340 [ 41.456431] Read of size 4294967280 by task a.out/987 [ 41.456431] ============================================================================= [ 41.456431] BUG kmalloc-512 (Not tainted): kasan: bad access detected [ 41.456431] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ...
