  2. mnt: Fail collect_mounts when applied to unmounted mounts

    ebiederm authored and mdmower committed Jan 7, 2015
    The only users of collect_mounts are in audit_tree.c
    In audit_trim_trees and audit_add_tree_rule the path passed into
    collect_mounts is generated from kern_path passed an audit_tree
    pathname which is guaranteed to be an absolute path.   In those cases
    collect_mounts is obviously intended to work on mounted paths and
    if a race results in paths that are unmounted when collect_mounts
    it is reasonable to fail early.
    The paths passed into audit_tag_tree don't have the absolute path
    check.  But are used to play with fsnotify and otherwise interact with
    the audit_trees, so again operating only on mounted paths appears
    Avoid having to worry about what happens when we try and audit
    unmounted filesystems by restricting collect_mounts to mounts
    that appear in the mount tree.

  1. ppp: take reference on channels netns

    Guillaume Nault authored and mdmower committed Mar 23, 2016
    Let channels hold a reference on their network namespace.
    Some channel types, like ppp_async and ppp_synctty, can have their
    userspace controller running in a different namespace. Therefore they
    can't rely on them to preclude their netns from being removed from
    under them.

  6. netfilter: x_tables: fix unconditional helper

    Florian Westphal authored and mdmower committed Mar 22, 2016
    Ben Hawkes says:
     In the mark_source_chains function (net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.c) it
     is possible for a user-supplied ipt_entry structure to have a large
     next_offset field. This field is not bounds checked prior to writing a
     counter value at the supplied offset.
    Problem is that mark_source_chains should not have been called --
    the rule doesn't have a next entry, so its supposed to return
    an absolute verdict of either ACCEPT or DROP.
    However, the function conditional() doesn't work as the name implies.
    It only checks that the rule is using wildcard address matching.
    However, an unconditional rule must also not be using any matches
    (no -m args).
    The underflow validator only checked the addresses, therefore
    passing the 'unconditional absolute verdict' test, while
    mark_source_chains also tested for presence of matches, and thus
    proceeeded to the next (not-existent) rule.
    Unify this so that all the callers have same idea of 'unconditional rule'.

  7. ipv4: Don't do expensive useless work during inetdev destroy.

    davem330 authored and mdmower committed Mar 14, 2016
    When an inetdev is destroyed, every address assigned to the interface
    is removed.  And in this scenerio we do two pointless things which can
    be very expensive if the number of assigned interfaces is large:
    1) Address promotion.  We are deleting all addresses, so there is no
       point in doing this.
    2) A full nf conntrack table purge for every address.  We only need to
       do this once, as is already caught by the existing
       masq_dev_notifier so masq_inet_event() can skip this.

  10. ALSA: hrtimer: Fix stall by hrtimer_cancel()

    tiwai authored and mdmower committed Jan 18, 2016
    hrtimer_cancel() waits for the completion from the callback, thus it
    must not be called inside the callback itself.  This was already a
    problem in the past with ALSA hrtimer driver, and the early commit
    [fcfdebe: ALSA: hrtimer - Fix lock-up] tried to address it.
    However, the previous fix is still insufficient: it may still cause a
    lockup when the ALSA timer instance reprograms itself in its callback.
    Then it invokes the start function even in snd_timer_interrupt() that
    is called in hrtimer callback itself, results in a CPU stall.  This is
    no hypothetical problem but actually triggered by syzkaller fuzzer.
    This patch tries to fix the issue again.  Now we call
    hrtimer_try_to_cancel() at both start and stop functions so that it
    won't fall into a deadlock, yet giving some chance to cancel the queue
    if the functions have been called outside the callback.  The proper
    hrtimer_cancel() is called in anyway at closing, so this should be

  11. pipe: limit the per-user amount of pages allocated in pipes

    Willy Tarreau authored and mdmower committed Jan 18, 2016
    On no-so-small systems, it is possible for a single process to cause an
    OOM condition by filling large pipes with data that are never read. A
    typical process filling 4000 pipes with 1 MB of data will use 4 GB of
    memory. On small systems it may be tricky to set the pipe max size to
    prevent this from happening.
    This patch makes it possible to enforce a per-user soft limit above
    which new pipes will be limited to a single page, effectively limiting
    them to 4 kB each, as well as a hard limit above which no new pipes may
    be created for this user. This has the effect of protecting the system
    against memory abuse without hurting other users, and still allowing
    pipes to work correctly though with less data at once.
    The limit are controlled by two new sysctls : pipe-user-pages-soft, and
    pipe-user-pages-hard. Both may be disabled by setting them to zero. The
    default soft limit allows the default number of FDs per process (1024)
    to create pipes of the default size (64kB), thus reaching a limit of 64MB
    before starting to create only smaller pipes. With 256 processes limited

    1084 MB of memory allocated for a user. The hard limit is disabled by
    default to avoid breaking existing applications that make intensive use
    of pipes (eg: for splicing).

  12. ALSA: timer: Harden slave timer list handling

    tiwai authored and mdmower committed Jan 14, 2016
    A slave timer instance might be still accessible in a racy way while
    operating the master instance as it lacks of locking.  Since the
    master operation is mostly protected with timer->lock, we should cope
    with it while changing the slave instance, too.  Also, some linked
    lists (active_list and ack_list) of slave instances aren't unlinked
    immediately at stopping or closing, and this may lead to unexpected
    This patch tries to address these issues.  It adds spin lock of
    timer->lock (either from master or slave, which is equivalent) in a
    few places.  For avoiding a deadlock, we ensure that the global
    slave_active_lock is always locked at first before each timer lock.
    Also, ack and active_list of slave instances are properly unlinked at
    snd_timer_stop() and snd_timer_close().
    Last but not least, remove the superfluous call of _snd_timer_stop()
    at removing slave links.  This is a noop, and calling it may confuse
    readers wrt locking.  Further cleanup will follow in a later patch.
    Actually we've got reports of use-after-free by syzkaller fuzzer, and
    this hopefully fixes these issues.

  13. ALSA: timer: Fix race among timer ioctls

    tiwai authored and mdmower committed Jan 13, 2016
    ALSA timer ioctls have an open race and this may lead to a
    use-after-free of timer instance object.  A simplistic fix is to make
    each ioctl exclusive.  We have already tread_sem for controlling the
    tread, and extend this as a global mutex to be applied to each ioctl.
    The downside is, of course, the worse concurrency.  But these ioctls
    aren't to be parallel accessible, in anyway, so it should be fine to
    serialize there.

  14. ALSA: timer: Fix double unlink of active_list

    tiwai authored and mdmower committed Jan 13, 2016
    ALSA timer instance object has a couple of linked lists and they are
    unlinked unconditionally at snd_timer_stop().  Meanwhile
    snd_timer_interrupt() unlinks it, but it calls list_del() which leaves
    the element list itself unchanged.  This ends up with unlinking twice,
    and it was caught by syzkaller fuzzer.
    The fix is to use list_del_init() variant properly there, too.

    Swetha Chikkaboraiah authored and mdmower committed Jan 27, 2016
    In function krait_pmu_disable_event, parameter hwc comes from
    userspace and is untrusted.The function krait_clearpmu is called
    after the function get_krait_evtinfo.
    Function get_krait_evtinfo as parameter krait_evt_type variable
    which is used to extract the groupcode(reg) which is bound to
     KRAIT_MAX_L1_REG (is 3). After validation,one code path modifies
    groupcode(reg):If this code path executes, groupcode(reg) can be
    3,4, 5, or 6. In krait_clearpmu groupcode used to access array
    krait_functions whose size is 3. Since groupcode can be 3,4,5,6
    accessing array krait_functions lead to bufferoverlflow.
    This change will validate groupcode not to exceed 3.

  1. pipe: Fix buffer offset after partially failed read

    bwhacks authored and mdmower committed Feb 13, 2016
    Quoting the RHEL advisory:
    > It was found that the fix for CVE-2015-1805 incorrectly kept buffer
    > offset and buffer length in sync on a failed atomic read, potentially
    > resulting in a pipe buffer state corruption. A local, unprivileged user
    > could use this flaw to crash the system or leak kernel memory to user
    > space. (CVE-2016-0774, Moderate)
    The same flawed fix was applied to stable branches from 2.6.32.y to
    3.14.y inclusive, and I was able to reproduce the issue on 3.2.y.
    We need to give pipe_iov_copy_to_user() a separate offset variable
    and only update the buffer offset if it succeeds.

  1. UPSTREAM: include/linux/poison.h: fix LIST_POISON{1,2} offset

    Vasily Kulikov authored and mdmower committed Sep 9, 2015
    (cherry pick from commit 8a5e5e02fc83aaf67053ab53b359af08c6c49aaf)
    Poison pointer values should be small enough to find a room in
    non-mmap'able/hardly-mmap'able space.  E.g.  on x86 "poison pointer space"
    is located starting from 0x0.  Given unprivileged users cannot mmap
    anything below mmap_min_addr, it should be safe to use poison pointers
    lower than mmap_min_addr.
    The current poison pointer values of LIST_POISON{1,2} might be too big for
    mmap_min_addr values equal or less than 1 MB (common case, e.g.  Ubuntu
    uses only 0x10000).  There is little point to use such a big value given
    the "poison pointer space" below 1 MB is not yet exhausted.  Changing it
    to a smaller value solves the problem for small mmap_min_addr setups.
    The values are suggested by Solar Designer:

  2. pipe: iovec: Fix memory corruption when retrying atomic copy as non-a…

    bwhacks authored and mdmower committed Jun 16, 2015
    pipe_iov_copy_{from,to}_user() may be tried twice with the same iovec,
    the first time atomically and the second time not.  The second attempt
    needs to continue from the iovec position, pipe buffer offset and
    remaining length where the first attempt failed, but currently the
    pipe buffer offset and remaining length are reset.  This will corrupt
    the piped data (possibly also leading to an information leak between
    processes) and may also corrupt kernel memory.
    This was fixed upstream by commits f0d1bec ("new helper:
    copy_page_from_iter()") and 637b58c ("switch pipe_read() to
    copy_page_to_iter()"), but those aren't suitable for stable.  This fix
    for older kernel versions was made by Seth Jennings for RHEL and I
    have extracted it from their update.

  1. tty: Fix unsafe ldisc reference via ioctl(TIOCGETD)

    peterhurley authored and intervigilium committed Jan 11, 2016
    ioctl(TIOCGETD) retrieves the line discipline id directly from the
    ldisc because the line discipline id (c_line) in termios is untrustworthy;
    userspace may have set termios via ioctl(TCSETS*) without actually
    changing the line discipline via ioctl(TIOCSETD).
    However, directly accessing the current ldisc via tty->ldisc is
    unsafe; the ldisc ptr dereferenced may be stale if the line discipline
    is changing via ioctl(TIOCSETD) or hangup.
    Wait for the line discipline reference (just like read() or write())
    to retrieve the "current" line discipline id.

  2. fuse: break infinite loop in fuse_fill_write_pages()

    Roman Gushchin authored and intervigilium committed Oct 12, 2015
    I got a report about unkillable task eating CPU. Further
    investigation shows, that the problem is in the fuse_fill_write_pages()
    function. If iov's first segment has zero length, we get an infinite
    loop, because we never reach iov_iter_advance() call.
    Fix this by calling iov_iter_advance() before repeating an attempt to
    copy data from userspace.
    A similar problem is described in 124d3b7 ("fix writev regression:
    pan hanging unkillable and un-straceable"). If zero-length segmend
    is followed by segment with invalid address,
    iov_iter_fault_in_readable() checks only first segment (zero-length),
    iov_iter_copy_from_user_atomic() skips it, fails at second and
    returns zero -> goto again without skipping zero-length segment.
    Patch calls iov_iter_advance() before goto again: we'll skip zero-length
    segment at second iteraction and iov_iter_fault_in_readable() will detect
    invalid address.
