[PATCH] fix use after free in smbfs.

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


>From code inspection it seems that after freeing 'req', in smb_request()
we continue to dereference it a dozen or so times.

That whole area of code looks suspect.
        if (!(req->rq_flags & SMB_REQ_RECEIVED)) {

smb_rput() also does a list_del_init, but only if its safe
to do so (ie, the refcount has dropped to 0).
To my not-smbfs-savvy eyes, it would seem that we could
potentially nuke the ->rq_queue list, and return from
smb_rput() if the request was still in use. What the rest
of the code does with such a buggered-up request, I've no
idea, but it probably isn't pretty.

Perhaps smb_rput should be taking a pointer to a request that can
be null'd on success ?

Looking further, we do exactly the same thing in smb_request_recv()


ditto in smbiod.c..

What am I missing here?  smb_rput() -> smb_free_request() does
a kmem_cache_free(req_cachep, req); making further use of that
cache item invalid.
