[PATCH] mm: mmap() sometimes succeeds even if the region to map is invalid.

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


This patch fixes two bugs of mmap():
 1. mmap() succeeds even if "offset" argument is a negative value, although
    it should return EINVAL in such case. Currently I have only checked
    it on x86_64 because (a) x86 seems to OK to accept a negative offset
    for mapping 2GB-4GB regions, and (b) I don't know about other
    architectures at all (I'll make it if needed).

 2. mmap() would succeed if "offset" + "length" get overflow, although
    it should return EOVERFLOW.

The detail of these problems is as follows:

1. mmap() succeeds even if "offset" argument is a negative value, although
   it should return EINVAL in such case.

POSIX says the type of the argument "off" is "off_t", which
is equivalent to "long" for all architecture, so it is allowed to
give a negative "off" to mmap().

In such case, it is actually regarded as big positive value
because the type of "off" is "unsigned long" in the kernel. 
For example, off=-4096 (-0x1000) is regarded as 
off = 0xfffffffffffff000 (x86_64) and as off = 0xfffff000 (x86).
It results in mapping too big offset region.

2. mmap() would succeed if "offset" + "length" get overflow, although
   it should return EOVERFLOW.

The overflow check of mmap() almost doesn't work.

In do_mmap_pgoff(file, addr, len, prot, flags, pgoff),
the existing overflow check logic is as follows.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
do_mmap_pgoff(struct file *file, unsigned long addr,
		unsigned long len, unsigned long prot,
		unsigned long flags, unsigned long pgoff)
{
	if ((pgoff + (len >> PAGE_SHIFT)) < pgoff)
		return -EOVERFLOW;
}
------------------------------------------------------------------------

However, for example on x86_64, if we give off=0x1000 and
len=0xfffffffffffff000, but EOVERFLOW is not returned.
It is because the checking is based on the page offset,
not on the byte offset.

To fix this bug, I convert this overflow check from page
offset base to byte offset base.
