[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] 9p: fix QEMU crash when renaming files

From: Greg Kurz
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH] 9p: fix QEMU crash when renaming files
Date: Thu, 22 Nov 2018 12:53:25 +0100
User-agent: StGit/unknown-version

When using the 9P2000.u version of the protocol, the following shell
command line in the guest can cause QEMU to crash:

    while true; do rm -rf aa; mkdir -p a/b & touch a/b/c & mv a aa; done

With 9P2000.u, file renaming is handled by the WSTAT command. The
v9fs_wstat() function calls v9fs_complete_rename(), which calls
v9fs_fix_path() for every fid whose path is affected by the change.
The involved calls to v9fs_path_copy() may race with any other access
to the fid path performed by some worker thread, causing a crash like
shown below:

Thread 12 "qemu-system-x86" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

#7  0x0000000000000000 in  ()

The fix is to take the path write lock when calling v9fs_complete_rename(),
like in v9fs_rename().

Impact:  DoS triggered by unprivileged guest users.
