Subject: [PATCH][next] netfilter: nf_tables: Fix dereference of null pointer flow
Date: Thu, 24 Jun 2021 20:57:18 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210624195718.170796-1-colin.king@canonical.com> (raw)

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

In the case where chain->flags & NFT_CHAIN_HW_OFFLOAD is false then
nft_flow_rule_create is not called and flow is NULL. The subsequent
error handling execution via label err_destroy_flow_rule will lead
to a null pointer dereference on flow when calling nft_flow_rule_destroy.
Since the error path to err_destroy_flow_rule has to cater for null
and non-null flows, only call nft_flow_rule_destroy if flow is non-null
to fix this issue.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Explicity null dereference")
Fixes: 3c5e44622011 ("netfilter: nf_tables: memleak in hw offload abort path")
