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. Upstream fix: ------------- -> https://git.kernel.org/linus/04bcef2a83f40c6db24222b27a52892cba39dffb === The bounds check added by the above patch are found to be redundant, as the same is done in routine 'nf_sockopt_find'.  + if (cmd < IP_VS_BASE_CTL || cmd > IP_VS_SO_SET_MAX) + return -EINVAL; + if (len < 0 || len > MAX_ARG_LEN) + return -EINVAL;  https://lkml.org/lkml/2009/9/30/265 That makes it a security non-issue. Please kindly reject this CVE. Thank you. -- Prasad J Pandit / Red Hat Security Response Team
