Linux Kernel 5.4.7 - n_tty_receive_buf_common use-after-free

0x01 - Introduction
===

# Product: Linux Kernel 
# Version: 5.4.7 (stable) and probably other versions
# Bug: UAF (Read)
# Tested on: GNU/Linux Debian 9 x86_64


0x02 - Details
===

There is a UAF read in "n_tty_receive_buf_common" function from the Linux tty driver.

Code analysis (drivers/tty/n_tty.c):

static int
n_tty_receive_buf_common(struct tty_struct *tty, const unsigned char *cp,
			 char *fp, int count, int flow)
{
	struct n_tty_data *ldata = tty->disc_data;
	int room, n, rcvd = 0, overflow;

	down_read(&tty->termios_rwsem);

	do {
	
		size_t tail = smp_load_acquire(&ldata->read_tail);

		room = N_TTY_BUF_SIZE - (ldata->read_head - tail);
		if (I_PARMRK(tty))
			room = (room + 2) / 3;
		room--;
		if (room <= 0) {
			overflow = ldata->icanon && ldata->canon_head == tail;
			if (overflow && room < 0)
				ldata->read_head--;
			room = overflow;
			ldata->no_room = flow && !room;
		} else
			overflow = 0;

		n = min(count, room);
		if (!n)
			break;

		/* ignore parity errors if handling overflow */
		if (!overflow || !fp || *fp != TTY_PARITY)			// <-- UAF occurs here
			__receive_buf(tty, cp, fp, n);

		cp += n;
		if (fp)
			fp += n;
		count -= n;
		rcvd += n;
	} while (!test_bit(TTY_LDISC_CHANGING, &tty->flags));

	tty->receive_room = room;

Comment 1 Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo 2020-02-10 14:13:04 UTC
This could be caused by a race around set_selection_kernel and paste_selection.

Though the call to set_selection_kernel is protected with console_lock, paste_selection isn't. So, the use of sel_buffer in paste_selection is unprotected, and it could be freed with a parallel call to set_selection.

Cascardo.

    vt: selection, close sel_buffer race
