2024-06-10 CVE-2024-36971 Use After Free vulnerability in Linux Kernel
In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: net: fix __dst_negative_advice() race __dst_negative_advice() does not enforce proper RCU rules when sk->dst_cache must be cleared, leading to possible UAF. RCU rules are that we must first clear sk->sk_dst_cache, then call dst_release(old_dst). Note that sk_dst_reset(sk) is implementing this protocol correctly, while __dst_negative_advice() uses the wrong order. Given that ip6_negative_advice() has special logic against RTF_CACHE, this means each of the three ->negative_advice() existing methods must perform the sk_dst_reset() themselves. Note the check against NULL dst is centralized in __dst_negative_advice(), there is no need to duplicate it in various callbacks. Many thanks to Clement Lecigne for tracking this issue. This old bug became visible after the blamed commit, using UDP sockets.

2024-05-30 CVE-2024-36884 NULL Pointer Dereference vulnerability in Linux Kernel 6.8/6.8.3/6.8.8
In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: iommu/arm-smmu: Use the correct type in nvidia_smmu_context_fault() This was missed because of the function pointer indirection. nvidia_smmu_context_fault() is also installed as a irq function, and the 'void *' was changed to a struct arm_smmu_domain.

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: maple_tree: fix mas_empty_area_rev() null pointer dereference Currently the code calls mas_start() followed by mas_data_end() if the maple state is MA_START, but mas_start() may return with the maple state node == NULL.

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: ipv6: fib6_rules: avoid possible NULL dereference in fib6_rule_action() syzbot is able to trigger the following crash [1], caused by unsafe ip6_dst_idev() use. Indeed ip6_dst_idev() can return NULL, and must always be checked.

2024-05-30 CVE-2024-36930 NULL Pointer Dereference vulnerability in Linux Kernel
In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: spi: fix null pointer dereference within spi_sync If spi_sync() is called with the non-empty queue and the same spi_message is then reused, the complete callback for the message remains set while the context is cleared, leading to a null pointer dereference when the callback is invoked from spi_finalize_current_message(). With function inlining disabled, the call stack might look like this: _raw_spin_lock_irqsave from complete_with_flags+0x18/0x58 complete_with_flags from spi_complete+0x8/0xc spi_complete from spi_finalize_current_message+0xec/0x184 spi_finalize_current_message from spi_transfer_one_message+0x2a8/0x474 spi_transfer_one_message from __spi_pump_transfer_message+0x104/0x230 __spi_pump_transfer_message from __spi_transfer_message_noqueue+0x30/0xc4 __spi_transfer_message_noqueue from __spi_sync+0x204/0x248 __spi_sync from spi_sync+0x24/0x3c spi_sync from mcp251xfd_regmap_crc_read+0x124/0x28c [mcp251xfd] mcp251xfd_regmap_crc_read [mcp251xfd] from _regmap_raw_read+0xf8/0x154 _regmap_raw_read from _regmap_bus_read+0x44/0x70 _regmap_bus_read from _regmap_read+0x60/0xd8 _regmap_read from regmap_read+0x3c/0x5c regmap_read from mcp251xfd_alloc_can_err_skb+0x1c/0x54 [mcp251xfd] mcp251xfd_alloc_can_err_skb [mcp251xfd] from mcp251xfd_irq+0x194/0xe70 [mcp251xfd] mcp251xfd_irq [mcp251xfd] from irq_thread_fn+0x1c/0x78 irq_thread_fn from irq_thread+0x118/0x1f4 irq_thread from kthread+0xd8/0xf4 kthread from ret_from_fork+0x14/0x28 Fix this by also setting message->complete to NULL when the transfer is complete.
