Subject: [PATCH 1/6] batctl: tcpdump: Fix missing sanity check for batman-adv header
Date: Sat, 27 Jan 2024 13:48:59 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20240127-tcpdump_fuzzing-v1-1-fbc1e1d3fec1@narfation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20240127-tcpdump_fuzzing-v1-0-fbc1e1d3fec1@narfation.org>

parse_eth_hdr() is assuming that every ETH_P_BATMAN ethernet packet has a
valid, minimal batman-adv header (packet_type, version, ttl) attached. But
it doesn't actually check if the received buffer has enough bytes to access
the two bytes packet_type + version. So it is possible that it tries to
read outside of the received data.

Fixes: 3bdfc388e74b ("implement simple tcpdump, first only batman packets")
