fork: block invalid exit signals with clone3()
Previously, higher 32 bits of exit_signal fields were lost when copied to the kernel args structure (that uses int as a type for the respective field). Moreover, as Oleg has noted, exit_signal is used unchecked, so it has to be checked for sanity before use; for the legacy syscalls, applying CSIGNAL mask guarantees that it is at least non-negative; however, there's no such thing is done in clone3() code path, and that can break at least thread_group_leader. This commit adds a check to copy_clone_args_from_user() to verify that the exit signal is limited by CSIGNAL as with legacy clone() and that the signal is valid. With this we don't get the legacy clone behavior were an invalid signal could be handed down and would only be detected and ignored in do_notify_parent(). Users of clone3() will now get a proper error when they pass an invalid exit signal. Note, that this is not user-visible behavior since no kernel with clone3() has been released yet. The following program will cause a splat on a non-fixed clone3() version and will fail correctly on a fixed version: #define _GNU_SOURCE #include <linux/sched.h> #include <linux/types.h> #include <sched.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <sys/syscall.h> #include <sys/wait.h> #include <unistd.h> int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { pid_t pid = -1; struct clone_args args = {0}; args.exit_signal = -1; pid = syscall(__NR_clone3, &args, sizeof(struct clone_args)); if (pid < 0) exit(EXIT_FAILURE); if (pid == 0) exit(EXIT_SUCCESS); wait(NULL); exit(EXIT_SUCCESS); } Fixes: 7f192e3cd316 ("fork: add clone3") Reported-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Suggested-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Suggested-by: Dmitry V.
