    From: Vasiliy Kulikov <>

    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 6a8ab060779779de8aea92ce3337ca348f973f54 upstream.

    Structures ip6t_replace, compat_ip6t_replace, and xt_get_revision are
    copied from userspace. Fields of these structs that are
    zero-terminated strings are not checked. When they are used as argument
    to a format string containing "%s" in request_module(), some sensitive
    information is leaked to userspace via argument of spawned modprobe

    The first bug was introduced before the git epoch; the second was
    introduced in 3bc3fe5e (v2.6.25-rc1); the third is introduced by
    6b7d31fc (v2.6.15-rc1). To trigger the bug one should have
