[PATCH v2 1/7] vhost-scsi: Fix vhost_scsi struct use after free

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


If vhost_scsi_setup_vq_cmds fails we leave the tpg->vhost_scsi pointer
set. If the device is freed and then the user unmaps the LUN, the call to
vhost_scsi_port_unlink -> vhost_scsi_hotunplug will see the that
tpg->vhost_scsi is still set and try to use it.

This has us clear the vhost_scsi pointer in the failure path. It also
has us take tv_tpg_mutex in this failure path, because tv_tpg_vhost_count
is accessed under this mutex in vhost_scsi_drop_nexus and in the future
we will want to serialize access to tpg->vhost_scsi with that mutex
instead of the vhost_scsi_mutex.
