netfilter: xt_recent: fix buffer overflow
Tim Gardner [Tue, 23 Feb 2010 13:55:21 +0000 (14:55 +0100)]
e->index overflows e->stamps[] every ip_pkt_list_tot packets.

Consider the case when ip_pkt_list_tot==1; the first packet received is stored
in e->stamps[0] and e->index is initialized to 1. The next received packet
timestamp is then stored at e->stamps[1] in recent_entry_update(),
a buffer overflow because the maximum e->stamps[] index is 0.
