In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: net/ipv6: avoid possible UAF in ip6_route_mpath_notify() syzbot found another use-after-free in ip6_route_mpath_notify() [1] Commit f7225172f25a ("net/ipv6: prevent use after free in ip6_route_mpath_notify") was not able to fix the root cause. We need to defer the fib6_info_release() calls after ip6_route_mpath_notify(), in the cleanup phase.
