Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next] mptcp: fix NULL ptr dereference in MP_JOIN
 error path

From: Paolo Abeni <>
Date: Fri, 29 May 2020 17:49:18 +0200

> When token lookup on MP_JOIN 3rd ack fails, the server
> socket closes with a reset the incoming child. Such socket
> has the 'is_mptcp' flag set, but no msk socket associated
> - due to the failed lookup.
> While crafting the reset packet mptcp_established_options_mp()
> will try to dereference the child's master socket, causing
> a NULL ptr dereference.
> This change addresses the issue with explicit fallback to
> TCP in such error path.
