Re: [PATCH v11 06/12] seccomp: add system call filtering using BPF

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


Hello Will.

I missed the previous discussions, and I don't think I can read
all these emails now. So I apologize in advance if this was already
discussed.

Minor nit, it seems that the new member can be "ifdef CONFIG_SECCOMP_FILTER"

OK, this limits the memory PR_SET_SECCOMP can use.

But,

this doesn't limit the number of filters, looks like a DoS.

What if the application simply does prctl(PR_SET_SECCOMP, dummy_filter)
in an endless loop?

This is purely cosmetic, but imho looks a bit confusing.

We do not copy seccomp->mode and this is correct, it was already copied
implicitely. So why do we copy ->filter? This is not "symmetrical", afaics
you can simply do

	void copy_seccomp(struct seccomp *child)
	{
		if (child->filter)
			atomic_inc(child->filter->usage);

But once again, this is cosmetic, feel free to ignore.

Oleg.
