Subject[PATCH 5.4 087/123] efi: Fix a race and a buffer overflow while reading efivars via sysfs
Date
From: Vladis Dronov <vdronov@redhat.com>

commit 286d3250c9d6437340203fb64938bea344729a0e upstream.

There is a race and a buffer overflow corrupting a kernel memory while
reading an EFI variable with a size more than 1024 bytes via the older
sysfs method. This happens because accessing struct efi_variable in
efivar_{attr,size,data}_read() and friends is not protected from
a concurrent access leading to a kernel memory corruption and, at best,
to a crash. The race scenario is the following:

CPU0: CPU1:
efivar_attr_read()
var->DataSize = 1024;
efivar_entry_get(... &var->DataSize)
down_interruptible(&efivars_lock)
efivar_attr_read() // same EFI var
var->DataSize = 1024;
efivar_entry_get(... &var->DataSize)
down_interruptible(&efivars_lock)
virt_efi_get_variable()
// returns EFI_BUFFER_TOO_SMALL but
// var->DataSize is set to a real
// var size more than 1024 bytes
up(&efivars_lock)
virt_efi_get_variable()
// called with var->DataSize set
// to a real var size, returns
// successfully and overwrites
// a 1024-bytes kernel buffer
up(&efivars_lock)

This can be reproduced by concurrent reading of an EFI variable which size
is more than 1024 bytes:

ts# for cpu in $(seq 0 $(nproc --ignore=1)); do ( taskset -c $cpu \
cat /sys/firmware/efi/vars/KEKDefault*/size & ) ; done

Fix this by using a local variable for a var's data buffer size so it
does not get overwritten.
