Subject: CVE-2024-38662: bpf: Allow delete from sockmap/sockhash only if update is allowed


In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved:

bpf: Allow delete from sockmap/sockhash only if update is allowed

We have seen an influx of syzkaller reports where a BPF program attached to
a tracepoint triggers a locking rule violation by performing a map_delete
on a sockmap/sockhash.

We don't intend to support this artificial use scenario. Extend the
existing verifier allowed-program-type check for updating sockmap/sockhash
to also cover deleting from a map.

>>From now on only BPF programs which were previously allowed to update
sockmap/sockhash can delete from these map types.

The Linux kernel CVE team has assigned CVE-2024-38662 to this issue.

The Linux kernel CVE team recommends that you update to the latest
stable kernel version for this, and many other bugfixes.  Individual
changes are never tested alone, but rather are part of a larger kernel
release.  Cherry-picking individual commits is not recommended or
supported by the Linux kernel community at all.  If however, updating to
the latest release is impossible, the individual changes to resolve this
issue can be found at these commits:
