Subject[PATCH 3.10 019/139] nl80211: check for the required netlink attributes presence
From: Vladis Dronov <>

commit e785fa0a164aa11001cba931367c7f94ffaff888 upstream.

nl80211_set_rekey_data() does not check if the required attributes
NL80211_REKEY_DATA_{REPLAY_CTR,KEK,KCK} are present when processing
NL80211_CMD_SET_REKEY_OFFLOAD request. This request can be issued by
users with CAP_NET_ADMIN privilege and may result in NULL dereference
and a system crash. Add a check for the required attributes presence.
This patch is based on the patch by bo Zhang.

This fixes CVE-2017-12153.

Fixes: e5497d766ad ("cfg80211/nl80211: support GTK rekey offload")
