In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: netfilter: nf_tables: flush pending destroy work before exit_net release Similar to 2c9f0293280e ("netfilter: nf_tables: flush pending destroy work before netlink notifier") to address a race between exit_net and the destroy workqueue. The trace below shows an element to be released via destroy workqueue while exit_net path (triggered via module removal) has already released the set that is used in such transaction.
