Subject[PATCH] KERNEL: resource: Fix bug on leakage in /proc/iomem file
Date
From: Emrah Demir <ed@abdsec.com>

Even though KASLR is aiming to mitigate remote attacks, with a simple LFI vulnerability through a web application, local leaks become as important as remote ones.
On the KASLR enabled systems in order to achieve expected protection, some files are needed to edited/modified to prevent leaks.

/proc/iomem file leaks offset of text section. By adding 0x80000000, Attackers can get _text base address. KASLR will be bypassed.

$ cat /proc/iomem | grep 'Kernel code'
38600000-38b7fe92 : Kernel code
$ python -c 'print hex(0x38600000 + 0x80000000)'
0xb8600000
# cat /proc/kallsyms | grep 'T _text'
ffffffffb8600000 T _text

By this patch after insertion resources, start and end address are zeroed. /proc/iomem and /proc/ioports sources, which use request_resource and insert_resource now shown as 0 value.
