polkit: Fix CVE-2019-6133jansa/thud
In PolicyKit (aka polkit) 0.115, the start time protection mechanism can be bypassed because fork() is not atomic, and therefore authorization decisions are improperly cached. This is related to lack of uid checking in polkitbackend/polkitbackendinteractiveauthority.c.

+
+It turns out that the combination of `(pid, start time)` is not

++ Subject: [SECURITY] polkit: temporary auth hijacking via PID reuse and non-atomic fork
++ Date: Wednesday, October 10, 2018 5:34 PM
++
++When a (non-root) user attempts to e.g. control systemd units in the system
++instance from an active session over DBus, the access is gated by a polkit
++policy that requires "auth_admin_keep" auth. This results in an auth prompt
++being shown to the user, asking the user to confirm the action by entering the
++password of an administrator account.
++
++After the action has been confirmed, the auth decision for "auth_admin_keep" is
++cached for up to five minutes. Subject to some restrictions, similar actions can
++then be performed in this timespan without requiring re-auth:
++
++ - The PID of the DBus client requesting the new action must match the PID of
++ the DBus client requesting the old action (based on SO_PEERCRED information
++ forwarded by the DBus daemon).
++ - The "start time" of the client's PID (as seen in /proc/$pid/stat, field 22)
++ must not have changed. The granularity of this timestamp is in the
++ millisecond range.
++ - polkit polls every two seconds whether a process with the expected start time
++ still exists. If not, the temporary auth entry is purged.
++
++Without the start time check, this would obviously be buggy because an attacker
++could simply wait for the legitimate client to disappear, then create a new
++client with the same PID.
++
++Unfortunately, the start time check is bypassable because fork() is not atomic.
++Looking at the source code of copy_process() in the kernel:
++
++ p->start_time = ktime_get_ns();
++ p->real_start_time = ktime_get_boot_ns();
++ [...]
++ retval = copy_thread_tls(clone_flags, stack_start, stack_size, p, tls);
++ if (retval)
++ goto bad_fork_cleanup_io;
++
++ if (pid != &init_struct_pid) {
++ pid = alloc_pid(p->nsproxy->pid_ns_for_children);
++ if (IS_ERR(pid)) {
++ retval = PTR_ERR(pid);
++ goto bad_fork_cleanup_thread;
++ }
++ }
++
++The ktime_get_boot_ns() call is where the "start time" of the process is
++recorded. The alloc_pid() call is where a free PID is allocated. In between
++these, some time passes; and because the copy_thread_tls() call between them can
++access userspace memory when sys_clone() is invoked through the 32-bit syscall
++entry point, an attacker can even stall the kernel arbitrarily long at this
++point (by supplying a pointer into userspace memory that is associated with a
++userfaultfd or is backed by a custom FUSE filesystem).
++
++This means that an attacker can immediately call sys_clone() when the victim
++process is created, often resulting in a process that has the exact same start
++time reported in procfs; and then the attacker can delay the alloc_pid() call
++until after the victim process has died and the PID assignment has cycled
++around. This results in an attacker process that polkit can't distinguish from
++the victim process.
