Subject: [PATCH rpcbind] Fix memory corruption in PMAP_CALLIT code
- A PMAP_CALLIT call comes in on IPv4 UDP
- rpcbind duplicates the caller's address to a netbuf and stores it in
FINFO[0].caller_addr. caller_addr->buf now points to a memory region A
with a size of 16 bytes
- rpcbind forwards the call to the local service, receives a reply
- when processing the reply, it does this in xprt_set_caller:
xprt->xp_rtaddr = *FINFO[0].caller_addr
It sends out the reply, and then frees the netbuf caller_addr and
However, it does not clear xp_rtaddr, so xp_rtaddr.buf now refers
to memory region A, which is free.
- When the next call comes in on the UDP/IPv4 socket, svc_dg_recv will
be called, which will set xp_rtaddr to the client's address.
It will reuse the buffer inside xp_rtaddr, ie it will write a
sockaddr_in to region A
Some time down the road, an incoming TCP connection is accepted,
allocating a fresh SVCXPRT. The memory region A is inside the
- While processing the TCP call, another UDP call comes in, again
overwriting region A with the client's address
- TCP client closes connection. In svc_destroy, we now trip over
the garbage left in region A
We ran into the case where a commercial scanner was triggering
occasional rpcbind segfaults. The core file that was captured showed
a corrupted xprt->xp_netid pointer that was really a sockaddr_in.
