Subject[PATCH 4.9 20/66] netfilter: nfnetlink_cthelper: Add missing permission checks
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Kevin Cernekee <cernekee@chromium.org>

commit 4b380c42f7d00a395feede754f0bc2292eebe6e5 upstream.

The capability check in nfnetlink_rcv() verifies that the caller
has CAP_NET_ADMIN in the namespace that "owns" the netlink socket.
However, nfnl_cthelper_list is shared by all net namespaces on the
system. An unprivileged user can create user and net namespaces
in which he holds CAP_NET_ADMIN to bypass the netlink_net_capable()
check:

$ nfct helper list
nfct v1.4.4: netlink error: Operation not permitted
$ vpnns -- nfct helper list
{
.name = ftp,
.queuenum = 0,
.l3protonum = 2,
.l4protonum = 6,
.priv_data_len = 24,
.status = enabled,
};

Add capable() checks in nfnetlink_cthelper, as this is cleaner than
trying to generalize the solution.
