Subject: CVE Request: kernel ebtables perm check

Has a CVE been assigned for this issue yet?

commit dce766af541f6605fa9889892c0280bab31c66ab
Author: Florian Westphal <>
Date:   Fri Jan 8 17:31:24 2010 +0100

    netfilter: ebtables: enforce CAP_NET_ADMIN
    normal users are currently allowed to set/modify ebtables rules.
    Restrict it to processes with CAP_NET_ADMIN.
    Note that this cannot be reproduced with unmodified ebtables
    because it uses SOCK_RAW.
