Description Eugene Teo (Security Response) 2009-12-04 01:21:05 UTC
Description of problem:
ipv4: additional update of dev_net(dev) to struct *net in ip_fragment.c, NULL ptr OOPS
    
ipv4 ip_frag_reasm(), fully replace 'dev_net(dev)' with 'net', defined previously patched into 2.6.29.
    
Between 2.6.28.10 and 2.6.29, net/ipv4/ip_fragment.c was patched, changing from dev_net(dev) to container_of(...).  Unfortunately the goto section (out_fail) on oversized packets inside ip_frag_reasm() didn't get touched up as well.  Oversized IP packets cause a NULL pointer dereference and immediate hang.
    
I discovered this running openvasd and my previous email on this is titled:  NULL pointer dereference at 2.6.32-rc8:net/ipv4/ip_fragment.c:566
