Subject[PATCH] libfs: fix infoleak in simple_attr_read()
Date
From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers@google.com>

Reading from a debugfs file at a nonzero position, without first reading
at position 0, leaks uninitialized memory to userspace.

It's a bit tricky to do this, since lseek() and pread() aren't allowed
on these files, and write() doesn't update the position on them. But
writing to them with splice() *does* update the position:

#define _GNU_SOURCE 1
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
int main()
{
int pipes[2], fd, n, i;
char buf[32];

pipe(pipes);
write(pipes[1], "0", 1);
fd = open("/sys/kernel/debug/fault_around_bytes", O_RDWR);
splice(pipes[0], NULL, fd, NULL, 1, 0);
n = read(fd, buf, sizeof(buf));
for (i = 0; i < n; i++)
printf("%02x", buf[i]);
printf("\n");
}

Output:
5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a5a30

Fix the infoleak by making simple_attr_read() always fill
simple_attr::get_buf if it hasn't been filled yet.
