It could occur while setting or retrieving socket options via setsockopt(2) or getsockopt(2) calls. Though a user needs to have CAP_NET_ADMIN privileges to perform these IP_VS operations. A user/program with CAP_NET_ADMIN privileges could use this flaw to further escalate their privileges on a system. Upstream fix: ------------- -> https://git.kernel.org/linus/04bcef2a83f40c6db24222b27a52892cba39dffb References: ----------- -> http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2013/Nov/77 -> https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1030800 Thank you. -- Prasad J Pandit / Red Hat Security Response Team
