Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> Subject: CVE-2010-4526 kernel: sctp: a race between ICMP protocol unreachable and connect() http://git.kernel.org/linus/50b5d6ad63821cea324a5a7a19854d4de1a0a819 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/CVE-2010-4526 commit 50b5d6ad63821cea324a5a7a19854d4de1a0a819 Author: Vlad Yasevich <vladislav.yasevich@...com> Date: Thu May 6 00:56:07 2010 -0700 sctp: Fix a race between ICMP protocol unreachable and connect() ICMP protocol unreachable handling completely disregarded the fact that the user may have locked the socket. It proceeded to destroy the association, even though the user may have held the lock and had a ref on the association. [...] This was because the sctp_wait_for_connect() would aqcure the socket lock and then proceed to release the last reference count on the association, thus cause the fully destruction path to finish freeing the socket. This affects kernels v2.6.11-rc2 and above. Thanks, Eugene
