Android: Kernel information disclosure in "maxdsm_read"




The "maxdsm" driver exposes several character devices which can be used to control and calibrate the device. One such device is the "control device", exposed under: "/dev/dsm_ctrl_dev".

The character device provides several file operations, including a "read" operation, which is implemented using the function "maxdsm_read". The code for the "maxdsm_read" function is as follows:

1. static ssize_t maxdsm_read(struct file *filep, char __user *buf,
2. size_t count, loff_t *ppos)
3. {
4. int ret;
5.
6. mutex_lock(&dsm_fs_lock);
7.
8. maxdsm_read_all();
9.
10. /* copy params to user */
11. ret = copy_to_user(buf, maxdsm.param, count);
12. if (ret)
13. pr_err("%s: copy_to_user failed - %d\n", __func__, ret);
14.
15. mutex_unlock(&dsm_fs_lock);
16.
17. return ret;
18. }

This function fails to validate the "count" argument, passed in by the caller. This means that calling "read" with a large count (i.e., larger than maxdsm.param_size) would copy in additional bytes which reside after the maxdsm.param buffer.

I've statically verified this issue on an SM-G935F device, using the open-source kernel package "SM-G935F_MM_Opensource".

The "/dev/dsm_ctrl_dev" file is owned by root, and has an SELinux context of "u:object_r:device:s0".

According to the default SELinux rules as present on the SM-G935F (version XXS1APG3), the following contexts may access these files:

This bug is subject to a 90 day disclosure deadline. If 90 days elapse
without a broadly available patch, then the bug report will automatically
become visible to the public.
