Doc Text:
A flaw was found in the Linux kernel’s networking code. A use-after-free was found in the way the sch_sfb enqueue function used the socket buffer (SKB) cb field after the same SKB had been enqueued (and freed) into a child qdisc. This flaw allows a local, unprivileged user to to disclose sensitive information or crash the system, causing a denial of service.

Description Mauro Matteo Cascella 2022-09-06 09:24:58 UTC
When the GSO splitting feature of sch_cake is enabled, GSO superpackets will be broken up and the resulting segments enqueued in place of the original skb. In this case, CAKE calls consume_skb() on the original skb, but still returns NET_XMIT_SUCCESS. This can confuse parent qdiscs into assuming the original skb still exists, when it really has been freed.
