-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA512 ============================================================================= FreeBSD-SA-21:06.xen Security Advisory The FreeBSD Project Topic: Xen grant mapping error handling issues Category: contrib Module: xen Announced: 2021-02-24 Credits: See Xen XSA-361 for details Affects: All supported versions of FreeBSD. Corrected: 2021-02-23 00:55:14 UTC (stable/13, 13.0-STABLE) 2021-02-24 01:42:35 UTC (releng/13.0, 13.0-BETA3-p1) 2021-02-23 00:58:03 UTC (stable/12, 12.2-STABLE) 2021-02-24 01:43:59 UTC (releng/12.2, 12.2-RELEASE-p4) 2021-02-23 00:59:23 UTC (stable/11, 11.4-STABLE) 2021-02-24 01:41:51 UTC (releng/11.4, 11.4-RELEASE-p8) CVE Name: CVE-2021-26932 For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories, including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the following sections, please visit <URL:https://security.FreeBSD.org/>. I. Background Xen is a type-1 hypervisor which supports FreeBSD as a Dom0 (or host domain). II. Problem Description Grant mapping operations often occur in batch hypercalls, where a number of operations are done in a single hypercall, the success or failure of each one reported to the backend driver, and the backend driver then loops over the results, performing follow-up actions based on the success or failure of each operation. Unfortunately, when running in HVM/PVH mode, the FreeBSD backend drivers mishandle this: Some errors are ignored, effectively implying their success from the success of related batch elements. In other cases, errors resulting from one batch element lead to further batch elements not being inspected, and hence successful ones to not be possible to properly unmap upon error recovery. III. Impact A malicious or buggy frontend driver may be able to cause resource leaks in the domain running the corresponding backend driver. IV. Workaround No workaround is available. FreeBSD systems not using Xen are not affected. V. Solution Upgrade your vulnerable system to a supported FreeBSD stable or release / security branch (releng) dated after the correction date and reboot. Perform one of the following: 1) 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 # shutdown -r +10min "Rebooting for a security update" 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 https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-21:06/xen.patch # fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-21:06/xen.patch.asc # gpg --verify xen.patch.asc b) Apply the patch. Execute the following commands as root: # cd /usr/src # patch < /path/to/patch c) Recompile your kernel as described in <URL:https://www.FreeBSD.org/handbook/kernelconfig.html> and reboot the system. VI. Correction details The following list contains the correction revision numbers for each affected branch.
