DescriptionIn the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: crypto: sun8i-ce - Fix use after free in unprepare sun8i_ce_cipher_unprepare should be called before crypto_finalize_skcipher_request, because client callbacks may immediately free memory, that isn't needed anymore. But it will be used by unprepare after free. Before removing prepare/unprepare callbacks it was handled by crypto engine in crypto_finalize_request. Usually that results in a pointer dereference problem during a in crypto selftest. Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0000000000000030 Mem abort info: ESR = 0x0000000096000004 EC = 0x25: DABT (current EL), IL = 32 bits SET = 0, FnV = 0 EA = 0, S1PTW = 0 FSC = 0x04: level 0 translation fault Data abort info: ISV = 0, ISS = 0x00000004, ISS2 = 0x00000000 CM = 0, WnR = 0, TnD = 0, TagAccess = 0 GCS = 0, Overlay = 0, DirtyBit = 0, Xs = 0 user pgtable: 4k pages, 48-bit VAs, pgdp=000000004716d000 [0000000000000030] pgd=0000000000000000, p4d=0000000000000000 Internal error: Oops: 0000000096000004 [#1] SMP This problem is detected by KASAN as well. ================================================================== BUG: KASAN: slab-use-after-free in sun8i_ce_cipher_do_one+0x6e8/0xf80 [sun8i_ce] Read of size 8 at addr ffff00000dcdc040 by task 1c15000.crypto-/373 Hardware name: Pine64 PinePhone (1.2) (DT) Call trace: dump_backtrace+0x9c/0x128 show_stack+0x20/0x38 dump_stack_lvl+0x48/0x60 print_report+0xf8/0x5d8 kasan_report+0x90/0xd0 __asan_load8+0x9c/0xc0 sun8i_ce_cipher_do_one+0x6e8/0xf80 [sun8i_ce] crypto_pump_work+0x354/0x620 [crypto_engine] kthread_worker_fn+0x244/0x498 kthread+0x168/0x178 ret_from_fork+0x10/0x20 Allocated by task 379: kasan_save_stack+0x3c/0x68 kasan_set_track+0x2c/0x40 kasan_save_alloc_info+0x24/0x38 __kasan_kmalloc+0xd4/0xd8 __kmalloc+0x74/0x1d0 alg_test_skcipher+0x90/0x1f0 alg_test+0x24c/0x830 cryptomgr_test+0x38/0x60 kthread+0x168/0x178 ret_from_fork+0x10/0x20 Freed by task 379: kasan_save_stack+0x3c/0x68 kasan_set_track+0x2c/0x40 kasan_save_free_info+0x38/0x60 __kasan_slab_free+0x100/0x170 slab_free_freelist_hook+0xd4/0x1e8 __kmem_cache_free+0x15c/0x290 kfree+0x74/0x100 kfree_sensitive+0x80/0xb0 alg_test_skcipher+0x12c/0x1f0 alg_test+0x24c/0x830 cryptomgr_test+0x38/0x60 kthread+0x168/0x178 ret_from_fork+0x10/0x20 The buggy address belongs to the object at ffff00000dcdc000 which belongs to the cache kmalloc-256 of size 256 The buggy address is located 64 bytes inside of freed 256-byte region [ffff00000dcdc000, ffff00000dcdc100)
