Subject: Re: [PATCH net] netlabel: cope with NULL catmap

From: Paolo Abeni <>
Date: Tue, 12 May 2020 14:43:14 +0200

> The cipso and calipso code can set the MLS_CAT attribute on
> successful parsing, even if the corresponding catmap has
> not been allocated, as per current configuration and external
> input.
> Later, selinux code tries to access the catmap if the MLS_CAT flag
> is present via netlbl_catmap_getlong(). That may cause null ptr
> dereference while processing incoming network traffic.
> Address the issue setting the MLS_CAT flag only if the catmap is
> really allocated. Additionally let netlbl_catmap_getlong() cope
> with NULL catmap.

> Fixes: ceba1832b1b2 ("calipso: Set the calipso socket label to match the secattr.")
> Signed-off-by: Paolo Abeni <>
