audit: ignore terminating NUL in AUDIT_USER_TTY messages
Miloslav Trmac [Thu, 19 Mar 2009 13:52:47 +0000 (09:52 -0400)]
AUDIT_USER_TTY, like all other messages sent from user-space, is sent
NUL-terminated.  Unlike other user-space audit messages, which come only
from trusted sources, AUDIT_USER_TTY messages are processed using
audit_log_n_untrustedstring().

This patch modifies AUDIT_USER_TTY handling to ignore the trailing NUL
and use the "quoted_string" representation of the message if possible.
