Description Rohit Keshri 2022-05-11 07:42:33 UTC
There are some null-ptr-deref bugs in server_key.c in net/rxrpc/server_key.c in the latest kernel, unprivileged users can easily trigger it via ioctl.

#Root Cause
Some function calls are not implemented in rxrpc_no_security, there are preparse_server_key, free_preparse_server_key and destroy_server_key.

When rxrpc security type is rxrpc_no_security, unprivileged users can easily trigger a null-ptr-deref bug via ioctl. So judgment should be added to prevent it
