Subject: Re: [PATCH net] rxrpc: Fix use-after-free in rxrpc_receive_data()

From: David Howells <>
Date: Fri, 24 Jan 2020 23:08:04 +0000

> The subpacket scanning loop in rxrpc_receive_data() references the
> subpacket count in the private data part of the sk_buff in the loop
> termination condition.  However, when the final subpacket is pasted into
> the ring buffer, the function is no longer has a ref on the sk_buff and
> should not be looking at sp->* any more.  This point is actually marked in
> the code when skb is cleared (but sp is not - which is an error).
> Fix this by caching sp->nr_subpackets in a local variable and using that
> instead.
> Also clear 'sp' to catch accesses after that point.
> This can show up as an oops in rxrpc_get_skb() if sp->nr_subpackets gets
> trashed by the sk_buff getting freed and reused in the meantime.
