Subject: [PATCH net-next] tipc: fix an use-after-free issue in tipc_recvmsg
Date: Fri, 23 Jul 2021 13:25:36 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

syzbot reported an use-after-free crash:

  BUG: KASAN: use-after-free in tipc_recvmsg+0xf77/0xf90 net/tipc/socket.c:1979
  Call Trace:
   tipc_recvmsg+0xf77/0xf90 net/tipc/socket.c:1979

   worker_thread+0x658/0x11f0 kernel/workqueue.c:2422

As Hoang pointed out, it was caused by skb_cb->bytes_read still accessed
after calling tsk_advance_rx_queue() to free the skb in tipc_recvmsg().

This patch is to fix it by accessing skb_cb->bytes_read earlier than
calling tsk_advance_rx_queue().

Fixes: f4919ff59c28 ("tipc: keep the skb in rcv queue until the whole data is read")
