Subject[34-longterm 241/247] bridge: netfilter: fix information leak
Date
From: Vasiliy Kulikov <segoon@openwall.com>

-------------------
This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release.
If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.
-------------------

commit d846f71195d57b0bbb143382647c2c6638b04c5a upstream.

Struct tmp is copied from userspace. It is not checked whether the "name"
field is NULL terminated. This may lead to buffer overflow and passing
contents of kernel stack as a module name to try_then_request_module() and,
consequently, to modprobe commandline. It would be seen by all userspace
processes.
