Subject: [PATCH] io_uring: Fix use-after-free in io_sq_wq_submit_work()
Date: Tue, 4 Aug 2020 20:40:42 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200805034042.GA29805@ubuntu> (raw)

when ctx->sqo_mm is zero, io_sq_wq_submit_work() frees 'req'
without deleting it from 'task_list'. After that, 'req' is
accessed in io_ring_ctx_wait_and_kill() which lead to
a use-after-free.
