[LLC]: Restrict LLC sockets to root
Patrick McHardy [Fri, 28 Mar 2008 03:28:10 +0000 (20:28 -0700)]
LLC currently allows users to inject raw frames, including IP packets
encapsulated in SNAP. While Linux doesn't handle IP over SNAP, other
systems do. Restrict LLC sockets to root similar to packet sockets.

[ Modified Patrick's patch to use CAP_NEW_RAW --DaveM ]
