Subject[PATCH 2/2] Revert "dccp: don't free ccid2_hc_tx_sock struct in dccp_disconnect()"
From: Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo <>

This reverts commit 2677d20677314101293e6da0094ede7b5526d2b1.

This fixes an issue that after disconnect, dccps_hc_tx_ccid will still be
kept, allowing the socket to be reused as a listener socket, and the cloned
socket will free its dccps_hc_tx_ccid, leading to a later use after free,
when the listener socket is closed.

This addresses CVE-2020-16119.

Fixes: 2677d2067731 (dccp: don't free ccid2_hc_tx_sock struct in dccp_disconnect())
