Subject: [dpdk-stable] [PATCH] net/i40e: fix the security risk of wild pointer operation
Date: Tue, 12 May 2020 11:19:15 -0400
Message-ID: <20200512151915.105152-1-wei.zhao1@intel.com> (raw)

In i40e PMD code of function i40e_res_pool_free(), if valid_entry is
freed by "rte_free(valid_entry);" in the following code:

if (prev != NULL) {
 ........................

   if (insert == 1) {
     LIST_REMOVE(valid_entry, next);
     rte_free(valid_entry);
    } else {
     rte_free(valid_entry);
     insert = 1;
    }
  }

then the following code for pool update may still use the wild pointer
"valid_entry":

" pool->num_free += valid_entry->len;
  pool->num_alloc -= valid_entry>len;
"
it seems to be a security bug, we should avoid this risk.
