Linux Kernel ksmbd Use-After-Free Remote Code Execution Vulnerability ZDI-22-1690 CVSS SCORE 10.0

So, another vulnerability with SMB… why is SMB such a nightmare. Thankfully the Kernel team has been aware for a few months, and it’s already (somewhat) fixed.

I understand why they added SMB to the kernel, but I personally would have preferred them to keep it out of the kernel. It’s always been a massive headache, and adding it to the kernel isn’t going to make things better.
