[PATCH] bfa: avoid buffer overrun for 12-byte model name

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

From: Jim Meyering <meyering@xxxxxxxxxx>

we use strncpy to copy a model name of length up to 15 (16, if you count
the NUL), into a buffer of size 12 (BFA_FCS_PORT_SYMBNAME_MODEL_SZ).
However, strncpy does not always NUL-terminate, so whenever the original
model string has strlen >= 12, the following strncat reads beyond end
of the ->sym_name buffer as it attempts to find end of string.

bfa_fcs_fabric_psymb_init(struct bfa_fcs_fabric_s *fabric)
	bfa_ioc_get_adapter_model(&fabric->fcs->bfa->ioc, model);
	strncpy((char *)&port_cfg->sym_name, model,
	strncat((char *)&port_cfg->sym_name, BFA_FCS_PORT_SYMBNAME_SEPARATOR,

bfa_ioc_get_adapter_model(struct bfa_ioc_s *ioc, char *model)
	struct bfi_ioc_attr_s	*ioc_attr;

	memset((void *)model, 0, BFA_ADAPTER_MODEL_NAME_LEN);
