Alan,

This patch really breaks UML using the skas mode of thread tracing skas3
patch on quite a significant amount of machines out there. The skas mode
is a lot more secure than the traditional UML tt mode. I guess this is
related to the below...

I am running a UML site that a lot of hospitals ad clinics in Bangldesh
depend on for there email. It allows them to work around the corruption
and agrandidement of the ISPs over there. The skas3 mode patch is
needed for the site to run securely. Tracing thread mode does not cut
it.

There are also a large number of other telehoused ISP virtual hosting
machines that use this stuff, and it is actually proving to be quite
reliable.

I have attached the skas3 patch that Jeff Dike is currently using, and
the patch that you have produced. Could you please look into the clash
between them, and get it fixed.

Thank you - there are lots out there who will appreciate this.

Cheers,

Matthew Grant

The dumpability is per mm, which means that you have to consider
all the cases of a thread being created in parallel to dumpability
being enabled.

So consider a three threaded process. Thread one triggers kernel thread
creation, thread two turns dumpability back on, thread three ptraces
the new kernel thread.

Proving that is safe is non trivial so the current patch chooses not
to attempt it. For 2.4.21 proper someone can sit down and do the needed
verification if they wish

Ptrace vulnerability in 2.2 and 2.4 kernels

From: Alan Cox <alan@redhat.com>
To: editor@lwn.net, scoop@freshmeat.net, kernel@linuxtoday.com, kernel@linuxfr.org, rob@linuxberg.com, chris@linuxdev.net,

Subject: Ptrace vulnerability in Linux 2.2/2.4
Date: Mon, 17 Mar 2003 11:00:16 -0500 (EST)

Vulnerability: CAN-2003-0127

The Linux 2.2 and Linux 2.4 kernels have a flaw in ptrace. This hole allows
local users to obtain full privileges. Remote exploitation of this hole is
not possible. Linux 2.5 is not believed to be vulnerable.

Linux 2.2.25 has been released to correct Linux 2.2. It contains no other
changes. The bug fixes that would have been in 2.2.5pre1 will now appear in
2.2.26pre1. The patch will apply directly to most older 2.2 releases.

A patch for Linux 2.4.20/Linux 2.4.21pre is attached. The patch also
subtly changes the PR_SET_DUMPABLE prctl. We believe this is neccessary and
that it will not affect any software. The functionality change is specific
to unusual debugging situations.

We would like to thank Andrzej Szombierski who found the problem, and
wrote an initial patch. Seth Arnold cleaned up the 2.2 change. Arjan van
de Ven and Ben LaHaise identified additional problems with the original
fix.
