New Revision: 41945
URL: http://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/doc/41945

Log:
  Fix a bug that allowed a tracing process (e.g. gdb) to write
  to a memory-mapped file in the traced process's address space
  even if neither the traced process nor the tracing process had
  write access to that file.

+
+Category:       core

+Announced:      2013-06-18
+Credits:        Konstantin Belousov

+Affects:        FreeBSD 9.0 and later
+Corrected:      2013-06-18 09:04:19 UTC (stable/9, 9.1-STABLE)
+                2013-06-18 09:05:51 UTC (releng/9.1, 9.1-RELEASE-p4)
+CVE Name:       CVE-2013-2171
+
+For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories,
+including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the
+following sections, please visit <URL:http://security.FreeBSD.org/>.
+
+I.   Background
+
+The FreeBSD virtual memory system allows files to be memory-mapped.
+All or parts of a file can be made available to a process via its
+address space.  The process can then access the file using memory
+operations rather than filesystem I/O calls.
+
+The ptrace(2) system call provides tracing and debugging facilities by
+allowing one process (the tracing process) to watch and control
+another (the traced process).
+
+II.  Problem Description
+
+Due to insufficient permission checks in the virtual memory system, a
+tracing process (such as a debugger) may be able to modify portions of
+the traced process's address space to which the traced process itself
+does not have write access.
+
+III. Impact
+
+This error can be exploited to allow unauthorized modification of an
+arbitrary file to which the attacker has read access, but not write
+access.  Depending on the file and the nature of the modifications,
+this can result in privilege escalation.
+
+To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker must be able to run
+arbitrary code with user privileges on the target system.
+
+IV.  Workaround
+
+No workaround is available.
+
+V.   Solution
+
+Perform one of the following:
+
+1) Upgrade your vulnerable system to a supported FreeBSD stable or
+release / security branch (releng) dated after the correction date.
+
+2) To update your vulnerable system via a source code patch:
+
+The following patches have been verified to apply to the applicable
+FreeBSD release branches.
+
+a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
+detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.
+
+# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-13:06/mmap.patch
+# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-13:06/mmap.patch.asc
+# gpg --verify mmap.patch.asc
+
+b) Apply the patch.
+
+# cd /usr/src
+# patch < /path/to/patch
+
+c) Recompile your kernel as described in
+<URL:http://www.FreeBSD.org/handbook/kernelconfig.html> and reboot the
+system.
+
+3) To update your vulnerable system via a binary patch:
+
+Systems running a RELEASE version of FreeBSD on the i386 or amd64
+platforms can be updated via the freebsd-update(8) utility:
+
+# freebsd-update fetch
+# freebsd-update install
+
+VI.  Correction details
+
+The following list contains the correction revision numbers for each
+affected branch.
