[PATCH] core-dumping unreadable binaries via PT_INTERP
Alexey Dobriyan [Fri, 26 Jan 2007 08:57:16 +0000 (00:57 -0800)]
Proposed patch to fix #5 in
http://www.isec.pl/vulnerabilities/isec-0017-binfmt_elf.txt
aka
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2004-1073

To reproduce, do
* grab poc at the end of advisory.
* add line "eph.p_memsz = 4096;" after "eph.p_filesz = 4096;"
  where first "4096" is something equal to or greater than 4096.
* ./poc /usr/bin/sudo && ls -l

Here I get with 2.6.20-rc5:

 -rw------- 1 ad   ad   102400 2007-01-15 19:17 core
 ---s--x--x 2 root root 101820 2007-01-15 19:15 /usr/bin/sudo

Check for MAY_READ like binfmt_misc.c does.
