Subject: [PATCH v2] net: qrtr: fix memory leaks
Date: Fri, 23 Jul 2021 18:31:32 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210723122753.GA3739@thinkpad>

Syzbot reported memory leak in qrtr. The problem was in unputted
struct sock. qrtr_local_enqueue() function calls qrtr_port_lookup()
which takes sock reference if port was found. Then there is the following

if (!ipc || &ipc->sk == skb->sk) {
	return -ENODEV;

Since we should drop the reference before returning from this function and
ipc can be non-NULL inside this if, we should add qrtr_port_put() inside
this if.

The similar corner case is in qrtr_endpoint_post() as Manivannan
reported. In case of sock_queue_rcv_skb() failure we need to put
port reference to avoid leaking struct sock pointer.

Fixes: e04df98adf7d ("net: qrtr: Remove receive worker")
Fixes: bdabad3e363d ("net: Add Qualcomm IPC router")

Changes in v2:
	Added missing qrtr_port_put() in qrtr_endpoint_post() as Manivannan
