Subject[GIT PULL] lsm: fix smack_inode_removexattr and xattr_getsecurity memleak
Please pull this fix for v4.14-rc4.

It fixes a bug in xattr_getsecurity() where security_release_secctx() was
being called instead of kfree(), which leads to a memory leak in the
capabilities code. smack_inode_getsecurity is also fixed to behave
correctly when called from there.


The following changes since commit d81fa669e3de7eb8a631d7d95dac5fbcb2bf9d4e:

Merge branch 'for-4.14-fixes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/wq (2017-10-03 10:44:03 -0700)

are available in the git repository at:

lsm: fix smack_inode_removexattr and xattr_getsecurity memleak

security_inode_getsecurity() provides the text string value
of a security attribute. It does not provide a "secctx".
The code in xattr_getsecurity() that calls security_inode_getsecurity()
and then calls security_release_secctx() happened to work because
SElinux and Smack treat the attribute and the secctx the same way.
It fails for cap_inode_getsecurity(), because that module has no
secctx that ever needs releasing. It turns out that Smack is the
one that's doing things wrong by not allocating memory when instructed
to do so by the "alloc" parameter.

The fix is simple enough. Change the security_release_secctx() to
kfree() because it isn't a secctx being returned by
security_inode_getsecurity(). Change Smack to allocate the string when
told to do so.

Note: this also fixes memory leaks for LSMs which implement
inode_getsecurity but not release_secctx, such as capabilities.
