Subject: Re: [PATCH] mqprio: Fix out-of-bounds access in mqprio_dump

From: Vladyslav Tarasiuk <>
Date: Fri, 6 Dec 2019 13:51:05 +0000

> When user runs a command like
> tc qdisc add dev eth1 root mqprio
> KASAN stack-out-of-bounds warning is emitted.
> Currently, NLA_ALIGN macro used in mqprio_dump provides too large
> buffer size as argument for nla_put and memcpy down the call stack.
> The flow looks like this:
> 1. nla_put expects exact object size as an argument;
> 2. Later it provides this size to memcpy;
> 3. To calculate correct padding for SKB, nla_put applies NLA_ALIGN
>    macro itself.
> Therefore, NLA_ALIGN should not be applied to the nla_put parameter.
> Otherwise it will lead to out-of-bounds memory access in memcpy.
