Subject: [PATCH] misc/libmasm/module: Fix two use after free in ibmasm_init_one
Date: Mon, 26 Apr 2021 10:06:20 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

In ibmasm_init_one, it calls ibmasm_init_remote_input_dev().
Inside ibmasm_init_remote_input_dev, mouse_dev and keybd_dev are
allocated by input_allocate_device(), and assigned to
sp->remote.mouse_dev and sp->remote.keybd_dev respectively.

In the err_free_devices error branch of ibmasm_init_one,
mouse_dev and keybd_dev are freed by input_free_device(), and return
error. Then the execution runs into error_send_message error branch
of ibmasm_init_one, where ibmasm_free_remote_input_dev(sp) is called
to unregister the freed sp->remote.mouse_dev and sp->remote.keybd_dev.

My patch add a "error_init_remote" label to handle the error of
ibmasm_init_remote_input_dev(), to avoid the uaf bugs.
