Description Marcus Meissner 2021-05-12 08:28:12 UTC
A race condition in the CAN ISOTP networking protocol was discovered which
allows forbidden changing of socket members after binding the socket.

In particular, the lack of locking behavior in isotp_setsockopt() makes it
feasible to assign the flag CAN_ISOTP_SF_BROADCAST to the socket, despite having
previously registered a can receiver. After closing the isotp socket, the can
receiver will still be registered and use-after-free's can be triggered in
isotp_rcv() on the freed isotp_sock structure.
This leads to arbitrary kernel execution by overwriting the sk_error_report()
pointer, which can be misused in order to execute a user-controlled ROP chain to
gain root privileges.

The vulnerability was introduced with the introduction of SF_BROADCAST support
in commit 921ca574cd38 ("can: isotp: add SF_BROADCAST support for functional
addressing") in 5.11-rc1.
In fact, commit 323a391a220c ("can: isotp: isotp_setsockopt():
block setsockopt on bound sockets") did not effectively prevent isotp_setsockopt()
from modifying socket members before isotp_bind().

The requested CVE ID will be revealed along with further exploitation details
as a response to this notice on 13th May of 2021.

Comment 1 Marcus Meissner 2021-05-12 08:28:46 UTC
likely only opensuse tumbleweed
Comment 3 Marcus Meissner 2021-05-18 13:36:43 UTC
its a dup, prehaps use this bug for tracking?
Comment 4 Borislav Petkov 2021-05-18 14:09:37 UTC
Your call - I'm fine with whichever one you guys use. Just close the other one :)
Comment 5 Takashi Iwai 2021-05-18 14:45:23 UTC
Already fixed in the upstream netdev?

It takes the lock_sock() around isotp_setsockopt().
Comment 6 Borislav Petkov 2021-05-18 15:31:14 UTC
Looks like it, see 1185564.
Comment 7 Takashi Iwai 2021-05-18 15:38:30 UTC
OK, now I pushed the backported fix to stable branch for TW.  Older releases are unaffected.

Reassigned back to security team.
