Subject[PATCH 4.14 45/45] proc: do not access cmdline nor environ from file-backed areas
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Willy Tarreau <w@1wt.eu>

commit 7f7ccc2ccc2e70c6054685f5e3522efa81556830 upstream.

proc_pid_cmdline_read() and environ_read() directly access the target
process' VM to retrieve the command line and environment. If this
process remaps these areas onto a file via mmap(), the requesting
process may experience various issues such as extra delays if the
underlying device is slow to respond.

Let's simply refuse to access file-backed areas in these functions.
For this we add a new FOLL_ANON gup flag that is passed to all calls
to access_remote_vm(). The code already takes care of such failures
(including unmapped areas). Accesses via /proc/pid/mem were not
changed though.

This was assigned CVE-2018-1120.

Note for stable backports: the patch may apply to kernels prior to 4.11
but silently miss one location; it must be checked that no call to
access_remote_vm() keeps zero as the last argument.
