Subject: [PATCH] apparmor: fix reference count leak in aa_pivotroot()
Date: Thu, 28 Apr 2022 11:39:08 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20220428033907.1658-1-xiongx18@fudan.edu.cn> (raw)

The aa_pivotroot() function has a reference counting bug in a specific
path. When aa_replace_current_label() returns on success, the function
forgets to decrement the reference count of “target”, which is
increased earlier by build_pivotroot(), causing a reference leak.

Fix it by decreasing the refcount of “target” in that path.

Fixes: 2ea3ffb7782a ("apparmor: add mount mediation")
