Gmane
From: Eric Paris <eparis <at> redhat.com>
Subject: [PATCH -v2 1/2] VM/SELinux: require CAP_SYS_RAWIO for all mmap_zero operations
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.security.selinux
Date: Tuesday 21st July 2009 23:03:39 UTC (over 8 years ago)
Currently non-SELinux systems need CAP_SYS_RAWIO for an application to mmap
the 0 page.  On SELinux systems they need a specific SELinux permission,
but do not need CAP_SYS_RAWIO.  This has proved to be a poor decision by
the SELinux team as, by default, SELinux users are logged in unconfined and
thus a malicious non-root has nothing stopping them from mapping the 0 page
of virtual memory.

On a non-SELinux system, a malicious non-root user is unable to do this, as
they need CAP_SYS_RAWIO.

This patch checks CAP_SYS_RAWIO for all operations which attemt to map a
page below mmap_min_addr.
