Subject: [PATCH net] sctp: walk the list of asoc safely
Date: Fri, 1 Feb 2019 15:15:22 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

In sctp_sendmesg(), when walking the list of endpoint associations, the
association can be dropped from the list, making the list corrupt.
Properly handle this by using list_for_each_entry_safe()

Fixes: 4910280503f3 ("sctp: add support for snd flag SCTP_SENDALL process in sendmsg")
