14 years ago[PATCH] Fix prctl privilege escalation and suid_dumpable (CVE-2006-2451)
Marcel Holtmann [Wed, 12 Jul 2006 11:12:00 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix prctl privilege escalation and suid_dumpable (CVE-2006-2451)

Based on a patch from Ernie Petrides

During security research, Red Hat discovered a behavioral flaw in core
dump handling. A local user could create a program that would cause a
core file to be dumped into a directory they would not normally have
permissions to write to. This could lead to a denial of service (disk
consumption), or allow the local user to gain root privileges.

The prctl() system call should never allow to set "dumpable" to the
value 2. Especially not for non-privileged users.

This can be split into three cases:

  1) running as root -- then core dumps will already be done as root,
     and so prctl(PR_SET_DUMPABLE, 2) is not useful

  2) running as non-root w/setuid-to-root -- this is the debatable case

  3) running as non-root w/setuid-to-non-root -- then you definitely
     do NOT want "dumpable" to get set to 2 because you have the
     privilege escalation vulnerability

With case #2, the only potential usefulness is for a program that has
designed to run with higher privilege (than the user invoking it) that
wants to be able to create root-owned root-validated core dumps. This
might be useful as a debugging aid, but would only be safe if the program
had done a chdir() to a safe directory.

There is no benefit to a production setuid-to-root utility, because it
shouldn't be dumping core in the first place. If this is true, then the
same debugging aid could also be accomplished with the "suid_dumpable"
sysctl.

Linus Torvalds [Wed, 12 Jul 2006 15:29:46 +0000]
Add PIIX4 APCI quirk for the 440MX chipset too

This is confirmed to fix a hang due to PCI resource conflicts with
setting up the Cardbus bridge on old laptops with the 440MX chipsets.
Original report by Alessio Sangalli, lspci debugging help by Pekka
Enberg, and trial patch suggested by Daniel Ritz:

  "From the docs available i would _guess_ this thing is really similar
   to the 82443BX/82371AB combination.  at least the SMBus base address
   register is hidden at the very same place (32bit at 0x90 in function
   3 of the "south" brigde)"

The dang thing is largely undocumented, but the patch was corroborated
by Asit Mallick:

  "I am trying to find the register information. 440MX is an integration of
   440BX north-bridge without AGP and PIIX4E (82371EB).  PIIX4 quirk
   should cover the ACPI and SMBus related I/O registers."

and verified to fix the problem by Alessio.

[S390] path grouping and path verifications fixes.

1. Multipath devices for which SetPGID is not supported are not handled well.
   Use NOP ccws for path verification (sans path grouping) when SetPGID is not

2. Check for PGIDs already set with SensePGID on _all_ paths (not just the
   first one) and try to find a common one. Moan if no common PGID can be
   found (and use NOP verification). If no PGIDs have been set, use the css
   global PGID (as before). (Rationale: SetPGID will get a command reject if
   the PGID it tries to set does not match the already set PGID.)
3. Immediately before reboot, issue RESET CHANNEL PATH (rcp) on all chpids. This
   will remove the old PGIDs. rcp will generate solicited CRWs which can be

[S390] xpram module parameter parsing.

The module parameters for xpram are not or in a wrong way parsed.
The xpram module uses the module_param_array directive with an int
parameter which causes the kernel to automatically parse the passed

Markus Schoder [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 15:06:06 +0000]
[PATCH] x86_64: Bring x86-64 ia32 emul in sync with i386 on READ_IMPLIES_EXEC enabling

Currently ia32 binaries behave differently with respect to enabling
READ_IMPLIES_EXEC.  On i386 a binary with the exec_stack flag set is
executed with READ_IMPLIES_EXEC enabled as well.  The same binary
executes without READ_IMPLIES_EXEC on x86-64.

This causes binaries that work on i386 to fail on x86-64 which goes
somewhat against the whole 32 bit emulation idea.

It has been argued that READ_IMPLIES_EXEC should not be enabled at all
for binaries that have the exec_stack flag.  Which is probably a valid
point.  However until this is clarified I think x86-64 should behave the
same for ia32 binaries as i386.

The following patch brings x86-64 in sync with i386 for ia32 binaries.

[PATCH] lockdep: disable lock debugging when kernel state becomes untrusted

Disable lockdep debugging in two situations where the integrity of the
kernel no longer is guaranteed: when oopsing and when hitting a
tainting-condition.  The goal is to not get weird lockdep traces that don't
make sense or are otherwise undebuggable, to not waste time.

Lockdep assumes that the previous state it knows about is valid to operate,
which is why lockdep turns itself off after the first violation it reports,
after that point it can no longer make that assumption.

A kernel oops means that the integrity of the kernel compromised; in
addition anything lockdep would report is of lesser importance than the
oops.

All the tainting conditions are of similar integrity-violating nature and
also make debugging/diagnosing more difficult.

Christoph Hellwig [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:45:38 +0000]
[PATCH] disallow modular binfmt_elf32

Currently most architectures either always build binfmt_elf32 in the kernel
image or make it a boolean option.  Only sparc64 and s390 allow to build it
modularly.  This patch turns the option into a boolean aswell because elf
requires various symbols that shouldn't be available to modules.  The most
urgent one is tasklist_lock whos export this patch series kills, but there
are others like force_sgi aswell.

Note that sparc doesn't allow a modular 32bit a.out handler either, and
that would be the more useful case as only few people want 32bit sunos
compatibility and 99.9% of all sparc64 users need 32bit linux native elf
support.

Christoph Hellwig [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:45:37 +0000]
[PATCH] snsc: switch from force_sig to kill_proc

Currently the snsc driver uses force_sig to send init a SIGPWR when the
system overheats.  This patch switches it to kill_proc instead which has
the following advantages:

 (1) gets rid of one of the last remaining tasklist_lock users
     in modular code
 (2) simplifies the snsc code significantly

The downside is that an init implementation could in theory block SIGPWR
and it would not get delivered.  The sysvinit code used by all major
distributions doesn't do this and blocking this signal in init would be a
rather stupid thing to do.

Fix module-init-func by repairing usage of platform_device_del/put in

module-init-func's undo handling.

Also fixes lack of release_region to undo the earlier registration.

Also starts to 'use a cdev' which was originally intended (its present in
scx200_gpio).  Code compiles and runs, exhibits a lesser error than
previously.  (re-register-chrdev fails)

Since I had to add "include <linux/cdev.h>", I went ahead and made 2

Lennert Buytenhek [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:45:27 +0000]
[PATCH] make valid_mmap_phys_addr_range() take a pfn

Newer ARMs have a 40 bit physical address space, but mapping physical
memory above 4G needs a special page table format which we (currently?) do
not use for userspace mappings, so what happens instead is that mapping an
address >= 4G will happily discard the upper bits and wrap.

There is a valid_mmap_phys_addr_range() arch hook where we could check for
>= 4G addresses and deny the mapping, but this hook takes an unsigned long
address:

static inline int valid_mmap_phys_addr_range(unsigned long addr, size_t size);

And drivers/char/mem.c:mmap_mem() calls it like this:

static int mmap_mem(struct file * file, struct vm_area_struct * vma)
{
size_t size = vma->vm_end - vma->vm_start;

if (!valid_mmap_phys_addr_range(vma->vm_pgoff << PAGE_SHIFT, size))

So that's not much help either.

This patch makes the hook take a pfn instead of a phys address.

[PATCH] Fix and enable EDAC sysfs operation

When EDAC was first introduced into the kernel it had a sysfs interface,
but due to some problems it was disabled in 2.6.16 and remained disabled in
2.6.17.

With feedback, several of the control and attribute files of that interface
had some good constructive feedback.  PCI Blacklist/Whitelist was a major
set which has design issues and it has been removed in this patch.  Instead
of storing PCI broken parity status in EDAC, it has been moved to the
pci_dev structure itself by a previous PCI patch.  A future patch will
enable that feature in EDAC by utilizing the pci_dev info.

The sysfs is now enabled in this patch, with a minimal set of control and
attribute files for examining EDAC state and for enabling/disabling the
memory and PCI operations.

The Documentation for EDAC has also been updated to reflect the new state
of EDAC operation.

Jeff Dike [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:45:06 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: fix static binary segfault

When UML is built as a static binary, it segfaults when run.  The reason is
that a memory hole that is present in dynamic binaries isn't there in static
binaries, and it contains essential stuff.

This fix removes the code which maps some anonymous memory into that hole and
cleans up some related code.

[PATCH] uml: timer initialization cleanup

This cleans up the mess that is the timer initialization.  There used to be
two timer handlers - one that basically ran during delay loop calibration and
one that handled the timer afterwards.  There were also two sets of timer
initialization code - one that starts in user code and calls into the kernel
side of the house, and one that starts in kernel code and calls user code.

This eliminates one timer handler and consolidates the two sets of
initialization code.

[PATCH] uml: clean up address space limits code

I was looking at the code of the UML and more precisely at the functions
set_task_sizes_tt and set_task_sizes_skas.  I noticed that these 2 functions
take a paramater (arg) which is not used : the function is always called with

I suppose that this value might change in the future (or even can be

[PATCH] NOMMU: Fix execution off of ramfs with mmap()

Fix execution through the FDPIC binfmt of programs stored on ramfs by
preventing the ramfs mmap() returning successfully on a private mapping of
a ramfs file.  This causes NOMMU mmap to make a copy of the mapped portion
of the file and map that instead.

This could be improved by granting direct mapping access to read-only
private mappings for which the data is stored on a contiguous run of pages.
 However, this is only likely to be the case if the file was extended with
truncate before being written.

ramfs is left to map the file directly for shared mappings so that SYSV IPC
and POSIX shared memory both still work.

Sometimes, applications need below call to be successful although
"/mnt/hugepages/file1" doesn't exist.

fd = open("/mnt/hugepages/file1", O_CREAT|O_RDWR, 0755);
*addr = mmap(NULL, 0x1024*1024*256, PROT_NONE, 0, fd, 0);

As for regular pages (or files), above call does work, but as for huge
pages, above call would fail because hugetlbfs_file_mmap would fail if
(!(vma->vm_flags & VM_WRITE) && len > inode->i_size).

This capability on huge page is useful on ia64 when the process wants to
protect one area on region 4, so other threads couldn't read/write this
area.  A famous JVM (Java Virtual Machine) implementation on IA64 needs the

[PATCH] pci: initialize struct pci_dev.error_state

The pci channel state is currently uninitialized, thus there are two ways
of indicating that "everything's OK": 0 and 1.  This is a bit of a burden.

If a devce driver wants to check if the pci channel is in a working or a
disconnected state, the driver writer must perform checks similar to

   if((pdev->error_state != 0) &&
      (pdev->error_state != pci_channel_io_normal)) {
         whatever();
   }

which is rather akward.  The first check is needed because stuct pci_dev is
inited to all-zeros.  The scond is needed because the error recovery will
set the state to pci_channel_io_normal (which is not zero).

This patch fixes this awkwardness.

Benjamin Herrenschmidt [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:44:42 +0000]
[PATCH] powerpc: fix trigger handling in the new irq code

This patch slightly reworks the new irq code to fix a small design error.  I
removed the passing of the trigger to the map() calls entirely, it was not a
good idea to have one call do two different things.  It also fixes a couple of
corner cases.

Mapping a linux virtual irq to a physical irq now does only that.  Setting the
trigger is a different action which has a different call.

The main changes are:

- I no longer call host->ops->map() for an already mapped irq, I just return
  the virtual number that was already mapped.  It was called before to give an
  opportunity to change the trigger, but that was causing issues as that could
  happen while the interrupt was in use by a device, and because of the
  trigger change, map would potentially muck around with things in a racy way.
   That was causing much burden on a given's controller implementation of
  map() to get it right.  This is much simpler now.  map() is only called on
  the initial mapping of an irq, meaning that you know that this irq is _not_
  being used.  You can initialize the hardware if you want (though you don't
  have to).

- Controllers that can handle different type of triggers (level/edge/etc...)
  now implement the standard irq_chip->set_type() call as defined by the
  generic code.  That means that you can use the standard set_irq_type() to
  configure an irq line manually if you wish or (though I don't like that
  interface), pass explicit trigger flags to request_irq() as defined by the
  generic kernel interfaces.  Also, using those interfaces guarantees that
  your controller set_type callback is called with the descriptor lock held,
  thus providing locking against activity on the same interrupt (including
  mask/unmask/etc...) automatically.  A result is that, for example, MPIC's
  own map() implementation calls irq_set_type(NONE) to configure the hardware
  to the default triggers.

- To allow the above, the irq_map array entry for the new mapped interrupt
  is now set before map() callback is called for the controller.

- The irq_create_of_mapping() (also used by irq_of_parse_and_map()) function
  for mapping interrupts from the device-tree now also call the separate
  set_irq_type(), and only does so if there is a change in the trigger type.

- While I was at it, I changed pci_read_irq_line() (which is the helper I
  would expect most archs to use in their pcibios_fixup() to get the PCI
  interrupt routing from the device tree) to also handle a fallback when the
  DT mapping fails consisting of reading the PCI_INTERRUPT_PIN to know wether
  the device has an interrupt at all, and the the PCI_INTERRUPT_LINE to get an
  interrupt number from the device.  That number is then mapped using the
  default controller, and the trigger is set to level low.  That default
  behaviour works for several platforms that don't have a proper interrupt
  tree like Pegasos.  If it doesn't work for your platform, then either
  provide a proper interrupt tree from the firmware so that fallback isn't
  needed, or don't call pci_read_irq_line()

- Add back a bit that got dropped by my main rework patch for properly
  clearing pending IPIs on pSeries when using a kexec

[PATCH] aoa: layout fabric: add missing module aliases

The layout fabric gained support for all IDs when I extracted those from the
OSX description file.  But apparently I had forgotten to add them all as
module aliases so the module will also load.  This patch adds them.

[PATCH] aoa: tas: fix initialisation/reset

This patch fixes the initialisation and reset of the tas codec.  The tas will
often reset if the i2s clocks go away so it needs to be completely
re-initialised when clocks come back.

Also, this patch adds some code for DRC that will be exploited later to add a
DRC control again, fixing a regression over snd-powermac.
