Subject[ 001/187] Tools: hv: verify origin of netlink connector message
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Olaf Hering <olaf@aepfle.de>

commit bcc2c9c3fff859e0eb019fe6fec26f9b8eba795c upstream.

The SuSE security team suggested to use recvfrom instead of recv to be
certain that the connector message is originated from kernel.

CVE-2012-2669
