net: Check the correct namespace when spoofing pid over SCM_RIGHTS
Andy Lutomirski [Thu, 22 Aug 2013 18:39:15 +0000 (11:39 -0700)]
commit d661684cf6820331feae71146c35da83d794467e upstream.

This is a security bug.

The follow-up will fix nsproxy to discourage this type of issue from
happening again.
