netfilter: nf_nat: fix access to uninitialized buffer in IRC NAT helper
commit 2690d97ade05c5325cbf7c72b94b90d265659886 upstream. Commit 5901b6be885e attempted to introduce IPv6 support into IRC NAT helper. By doing so, the following code seemed to be removed by accident: ip = ntohl(exp->master->tuplehash[IP_CT_DIR_REPLY].tuple.dst.u3.ip); sprintf(buffer, "%u %u", ip, port); pr_debug("nf_nat_irc: inserting '%s' == %pI4, port %u\n", buffer, &ip, port); This leads to the fact that buffer[] was left uninitialized and contained some stack value. When we call nf_nat_mangle_tcp_packet(), we call strlen(buffer) on excatly this uninitialized buffer. If we are unlucky and the skb has enough tailroom, we overwrite resp. leak contents with values that sit on our stack into the packet and send that out to the receiver. Since the rather informal DCC spec [1] does not seem to specify IPv6 support right now, we log such occurences so that admins can act accordingly, and drop the packet. I've looked into XChat source, and IPv6 is not supported there: addresses are in u32 and print via %u format string. Therefore, restore old behaviour as in IPv4, use snprintf(). The IRC helper does not support IPv6 by now. By this, we can safely use strlen(buffer) in nf_nat_mangle_tcp_packet() and prevent a buffer overflow. Also simplify some code as we now have ct variable anyway.
