net: core: Fix Spectre v1 vulnerability
flen is indirectly controlled by user-space, hence leading to a potential exploitation of the Spectre variant 1 vulnerability. This issue was detected with the help of Smatch: net/core/filter.c:1101 bpf_check_classic() warn: potential spectre issue 'filter' [w] Fix this by sanitizing flen before using it to index filter at line 1101: switch (filter[flen - 1].code) { and through pc at line 1040: const struct sock_filter *ftest = &filter[pc]; Notice that given that speculation windows are large, the policy is to kill the speculation on the first load and not worry if it can be completed with a dependent load/store [1].
