In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

geneve: fix header validation in geneve[6]_xmit_skb

syzbot is able to trigger an uninit-value in geneve_xmit() [1]

Problem : While most ip tunnel helpers (like ip_tunnel_get_dsfield())
uses skb_protocol(skb, true), pskb_inet_may_pull() is only using
skb->protocol.

If anything else than ETH_P_IPV6 or ETH_P_IP is found in skb->protocol,
pskb_inet_may_pull() does nothing at all.

If a vlan tag was provided by the caller (af_packet in the syzbot case),
the network header might not point to the correct location, and skb
linear part could be smaller than expected.

Add skb_vlan_inet_prepare() to perform a complete mac validation.

Use this in geneve for the moment, I suspect we need to adopt this
more broadly.

v4 - Jakub reported v3 broke l2_tos_ttl_inherit.sh selftest

  • Only call __vlan_get_protocol() for vlan types.

v2,v3 - Addressed Sabrina comments on v1 and v2
