Subject: [PATCH] scsi: be2iscsi: Reset the address passed in beiscsi_iface_create_default
Date: Tue,  6 Apr 2021 19:24:45 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210407002445.2209330-1-pakki001@umn.edu> (raw)

if_info is a local variable that is passed to beiscsi_if_get_info. In
case of failure, the variable is free'd but not reset to NULL. The patch
avoids security issue by passing NULL to if_info.
