Subject[PATCH 4.14 54/71] net/tls: Only attach to sockets in ESTABLISHED state
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Ilya Lesokhin <>

[ Upstream commit d91c3e17f75f218022140dee18cf515292184a8f ]

Calling accept on a TCP socket with a TLS ulp attached results
in two sockets that share the same ulp context.
The ulp context is freed while a socket is destroyed, so
after one of the sockets is released, the second second will
trigger a use after free when it tries to access the ulp context
attached to it.
We restrict the TLS ulp to sockets in ESTABLISHED state
to prevent the scenario above.

Fixes: 3c4d7559159b ("tls: kernel TLS support")
