Subject: [PATCH 1/1] ima: check control characters in policy file path
Date: Sat, 14 Aug 2021 16:27:23 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210814082723.261-1-anakinzhang96@gmail.com> (raw)

When a policy file path contains control characters like '\r' or '\b',
invalid error messages can be printed to overwrite system messages:

$ echo -e "/\rtest 12345678" > /sys/kernel/security/ima/policy

This patch rejects policy paths with control characters.
