      drivers: avoid format string in dev_set_name · 02aa2a37
      Kees Cook authored
      Calling dev_set_name with a single paramter causes it to be handled as a
      format string.  Many callers are passing potentially dynamic string
      content, so use "%s" in those cases to avoid any potential accidents,
      including wrappers like device_create*() and bdi_register().

      clean up scary strncpy(dst, src, strlen(src)) uses · 096a8aac
      Kees Cook authored
      Fix various weird constructions of strncpy(dst, src, strlen(src)).
      Length limits should be about the space available in the destination,
      not repurposed as a method to either always include or always exclude a
      trailing NULL byte.  Either the NULL should always be copied (using
      strlcpy), or it should not be copied (using something like memcpy).
      Readable code should not depend on the weird behavior of strncpy when it
      hits the length limit.  Better to avoid the anti-pattern entirely.

      mm: correctly update zone->managed_pages · 3dcc0571
      Jiang Liu authored
      Enhance adjust_managed_page_count() to adjust totalhigh_pages for
      highmem pages.  And change code which directly adjusts totalram_pages to
      use adjust_managed_page_count() because it adjusts totalram_pages,
      totalhigh_pages and zone->managed_pages altogether in a safe way.
      Remove inc_totalhigh_pages() and dec_totalhigh_pages() from xen/balloon
      driver bacause adjust_managed_page_count() has already adjusted
      This patch also fixes two bugs:
      1) enhances virtio_balloon driver to adjust totalhigh_pages when
         reserve/unreserve pages.
      2) enhance memory_hotplug.c to adjust totalhigh_pages when hot-removing
      We still need to deal with modifications of totalram_pages in file
      arch/powerpc/platforms/pseries/cmm.c, but need help from PPC experts.

      block: do not pass disk names as format strings · ffc8b308
      Kees Cook authored
      Disk names may contain arbitrary strings, so they must not be
      interpreted as format strings.  It seems that only md allows arbitrary
      strings to be used for disk names, but this could allow for a local
      memory corruption from uid 0 into ring 0.

      drivers/cdrom/cdrom.c: use kzalloc() for failing hardware · 542db015
      Jonathan Salwan authored
      In drivers/cdrom/cdrom.c mmc_ioctl_cdrom_read_data() allocates a memory
      area with kmalloc in line 2885.
        2885         cgc->buffer = kmalloc(blocksize, GFP_KERNEL);
        2886         if (cgc->buffer == NULL)
        2887                 return -ENOMEM;
      In line 2908 we can find the copy_to_user function:
        2908         if (!ret && copy_to_user(arg, cgc->buffer, blocksize))
      The cgc->buffer is never cleaned and initialized before this function.
      If ret = 0 with the previous basic block, it's possible to display some
      memory bytes in kernel space from userspace.
      When we read a block from the disk it normally fills the ->buffer but if
      the drive is malfunctioning there is a chance that it would only be
      partially filled.  The result is an leak information to userspace.
