Subject: Re: [PATCH v5] ipv6:introduce function to find route for redirect

From: Duan Jiong <>
Date: Wed, 04 Sep 2013 19:44:21 +0800

> From: Duan Jiong <>
> RFC 4861 says that the IP source address of the Redirect is the
> same as the current first-hop router for the specified ICMP
> Destination Address, so the gateway should be taken into
> consideration when we find the route for redirect.
> There was once a check in commit
> a6279458c534d01ccc39498aba61c93083ee0372 ("NDISC: Search over
> all possible rules on receipt of redirect.") and the check
> went away in commit b94f1c0904da9b8bf031667afc48080ba7c3e8c9
> ("ipv6: Use icmpv6_notify() to propagate redirect, instead of
> rt6_redirect()").
> The bug is only "exploitable" on layer-2 because the source
> address of the redirect is checked to be a valid link-local
> address but it makes spoofing a lot easier in the same L2
> domain nonetheless.
> Thanks very much for Hannes's help.
