SubjectRe: [PATCH] fs/open: Fix most outstanding security bugs
+++ Johannes Thumshirn [01/04/19 11:01 +0200]:
>Over the last 20 years, the Linux kernel has accumulated hundreds if not
>thousands of security vulnerabilities.
>
>One common pattern in most of these security related reports is processes
>called "syzkaller", "trinity" or "syz-executor" opening files and then
>abuse kernel interfaces causing kernel crashes or even worse threats using
>memory overwrites or by exploiting race conditions.
>
>Hunting down these bugs has become time consuming and very expensive, so
>I've decided to put an end to it.
>
>If one of the above mentioned processes tries opening a file, return -EPERM
>indicating this process does not have the permission to open files on Linux
>anymore.
