[PATCH] crypto: ghash: Avoid null pointer dereference if no key is set.

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


The ghash_update function passes a pointer to gf128mul_4k_lle which will
be NULL if ghash_setkey is not called or if the most recent call to
ghash_setkey failed to allocate memory.  This causes an oops.  Fix this
up by returning an error code in the null case.

This is trivially triggered from unpriviliged userspace through the
AF_ALG interface by simply writing to the socket without setting a key.

I checked all the other keyed hashes in crypto/ that I could see, and
none of them crash when run without a key.  However, they all produce
(presumably bogus) output in this case, so it may be prudent to make
them return an error, too, for consistency.  Alternately, we could try
to modify ghash so that it behaves like the other keyed hashes (and
doesn't crash) when no key is set.

I haven't had a chance to look for issues in any ciphers yet, or in
other hash modes.
