install_special_mapping skips security_file_mmap check.
Tavis Ormandy [Thu, 9 Dec 2010 14:29:42 +0000 (15:29 +0100)]
The install_special_mapping routine (used, for example, to setup the
vdso) skips the security check before insert_vm_struct, allowing a local
attacker to bypass the mmap_min_addr security restriction by limiting
the available pages for special mappings.

bprm_mm_init() also skips the check, and although I don't think this can
be used to bypass any restrictions, I don't see any reason not to have
the security check.

It's worth noting that Red Hat are shipping with mmap_min_addr set to
4096.
