Date: Wed, 15 Nov 2017 06:55:47 -0500 (EST) From: Vladis Dronov <vdronov@...hat.com> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: CVE-2017-15115: Linux kernel: sctp: use-after-free in sctp_cmp_addr_exact() Heololo, It was found that in Linux kernel when peeling off an association to the socket in another network namespace, all transports in this association are not to be rehashed and keep use the old key in hashtable. A kernel would miss removing transports from hashtable when closing the socket and all transports are being freed. Later on a use-after-free could be caused when looking up an association and dereferencing the transports. This is a very old issue and it was fixed in Linux kernel v4.14-rc6, and may still be not fixed in other distributions.
