tools: hv: Netlink source address validation allows DoS
commit 95a69adab9acfc3981c504737a2b6578e4d846ef upstream. The source code without this patch caused hypervkvpd to exit when it processed a spoofed Netlink packet which has been sent from an untrusted local user. Now Netlink messages with a non-zero nl_pid source address are ignored and a warning is printed into the syslog. Signed-off-by: Tomas Hozza <thozza@redhat.com> Acked-by: K. Y. Srinivasan <kys@microsoft.com> Cc: Ben Hutchings <ben@decadent.org.uk> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
