Description Alex 2022-05-24 09:32:31 UTC
A UAF flaw in Linux Kernel found in pipes functionality. The problem located in function free_pipe_info of the fs/pipe.c.
When a pipe node is freed, it doesn't make pipe->watch_queue->pipe null. When function post_one_notification is called, it will use this field, but it has been freed and watch_queue->pipe is a dangling pointer.
The problem was introduced since commit db8facfc9fafacefe8a835 "watch_queue, pipe: Free watchqueue state after clearing pipe ring".
