Subject[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH net] rds: Prevent kernel-infoleak in rds_notify_queue_get()
Date
rds_notify_queue_get() is potentially copying uninitialized kernel stack
memory to userspace since the compiler may leave a 4-byte hole at the end
of `cmsg`.

In 2016 we tried to fix this issue by doing `= { 0 };` on `cmsg`, which
unfortunately does not always initialize that 4-byte hole. Fix it by using
memset() instead.

Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org
Fixes: f037590fff30 ("rds: fix a leak of kernel memory")
Fixes: bdbe6fbc6a2f ("RDS: recv.c")
Suggested-by: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>

Note: the "real" copy_to_user() happens in put_cmsg(), where
`cmlen - sizeof(*cm)` equals to `sizeof(cmsg)`.
