Hi!

I have discovered a problem with the changes applied to smbfs in 2.4.34 and
in the security backports like last Debian's 2.4 kernel update these changes
seem to be made to solve CVE-2006-5871 and they have broken symbolic links
and changed the way that special files (like devices) are seen.

For example:
Before: symbolic links were seen as that, symbolic links an thus if you tried
to open the file the link was followed and you ended up reading the
destination file
Now: symbolic links are seen as normal files (at least with a ls) but their
length (N) is the length of the symbolic link, if you read it, you'll get the
first N characters of the destination file. For example, on my filesystem
bin/sh is a symlink to bash, thus it is 4 bytes long, if I to a cat bin/sh I
get ELF (this is, the first 4 characters of the bash program, first one
being a DEL).

Another example:
Before: if you did a ls of a device file, like dev/zero you could see it as
a device, if you tried opening it, it wouldn't work, but if you did a cp -a
of that file to a local filesystem the result was a working zero device.
Now: the devices are seen as normal files with a length of 0 bytes.

Seems to me like a mask is erasing some mode bits that shouldn't be erased.

I have carried my tests on a Debian Sarge machine always mounting the share
using: smbmount //server/share /mnt without any other options. The tests
were carried on a unpatched 2.4.34 comparing it to 2.4.33 and also on
Debian's 2.4.27 comparing 2.4.27-10sarge4 vs -10sarge5. The server is a
samba 3.0.23d and I have experienced the same behaviour with samba's
unix extensions = yes and unix extensions = no.

I don't know what else to add, if you need any more info or want me to do
any tests just ask for it.

Regards...

Well, there is not much to add there. Thanks very much for all your tests.
This problem was not easy to fix, and Dann Frazier did a careful job at
backporting it and testing it. Unfortunately, corner cases like this may
sometimes pass through the tests.

Dann, do you still have your samba server ready to try to reproduce this
problem ? Also, there are very suspect lines right there in the patch :

@@ -505,8 +510,13 @@
 		mnt->file_mode = (oldmnt->file_mode & S_IRWXUGO) | S_IFREG;
 		mnt->dir_mode = (oldmnt->dir_mode & S_IRWXUGO) | S_IFDIR;
 
-		mnt->flags = (oldmnt->file_mode >> 9);
+		mnt->flags = (oldmnt->file_mode >> 9) | SMB_MOUNT_UID |
+			SMB_MOUNT_GID | SMB_MOUNT_FMODE | SMB_MOUNT_DMODE;
 	} else {
+		mnt->file_mode = mnt->dir_mode = S_IRWXU | S_IRGRP | S_IXGRP |
+						S_IROTH | S_IXOTH | S_IFREG;
+		mnt->dir_mode = mnt->dir_mode = S_IRWXU | S_IRGRP | S_IXGRP |
+						S_IROTH | S_IXOTH | S_IFDIR;
 		if (parse_options(mnt, raw_data))
 			goto out_bad_option;
 	}


See above ? mnt->dir_mode being assigned 3 times. It still *seems* to do the
expected thing like this but I wonder if the initial intent was exactly this.
Also, would not it be necessary to add "|S_IFLNK" to the file_mode ? Maybe
what I say is stupid, but it's just a guess.

Santiago, if you feel brave enough to try completely untested code, I
would suggest to try this change :

 	} else {
-		mnt->file_mode = mnt->dir_mode = S_IRWXU | S_IRGRP | S_IXGRP |
-						S_IROTH | S_IXOTH | S_IFREG;
-		mnt->dir_mode = mnt->dir_mode = S_IRWXU | S_IRGRP | S_IXGRP |
-						S_IROTH | S_IXOTH | S_IFDIR;
+		mnt->file_mode = S_IRWXU | S_IRGRP | S_IXGRP |
+				S_IROTH | S_IXOTH | S_IFREG | S_IFLNK;
+		mnt->dir_mode = S_IRWXU | S_IRGRP | S_IXGRP |
+				S_IROTH | S_IXOTH | S_IFDIR;
 		if (parse_options(mnt, raw_data))
 			goto out_bad_option;


Also, please try making symlinks to directories to see how they behave.

Thanks in advance,
Willy

I'm comparing 2.4.33.3 with 2.4.34, with 2.4.34 and above patch symlinks 
to directories seen as target, nor can they be created (Operation not 
permitted...)

(copied /usr to spare partition on server)

Thanks very much Grant for the test. Could you try a symlink to a file ?
And while we're at it, would you like to try to add "|S_IFLNK" to
mnt->dir_mode ? If my suggestion was stupid, at least let's test it to
full extent ;-)

I had another idea looking at the code but since I really don't know it,
I would not like to propose random changes till this magically works. I'd
wait for Dann who understood the code.

Best regards,
Willy

Yep, already tried the obvious ;)  no difference :(

2.4.33.5 onwards also have a problem with symlinks, but it is slightly 
different presentation, the directory symlinks appear as normal files.

With 2.4.33.7 one is able to create file and directory symlinks, though 
the links appear as files.  Content problem as noted by OP:

grant@sempro:/home/other$ uname -r
2.4.33.7
grant@sempro:/home/other$ cat file
this is a test
grant@sempro:/home/other$ cat filelink
thisgrant@sempro:/home/other$

grant@sempro:/home/other$ mkdir directory
grant@sempro:/home/other$ ln -s directory directorylink
grant@sempro:/home/other$ cp file* directory
grant@sempro:/home/other$ ls directory
file*  filelink*
grant@sempro:/home/other$ ls directorylink
directorylink*

Now, WinXP sees the contents of directorylink:

X:\>cd directorylink

X:\directorylink>dir
 Volume in drive X is other
 Volume Serial Number is 107E-052F

 Directory of X:\directorylink

2007-01-18  16:36    <DIR>          .
2007-01-18  16:33    <DIR>          ..
2007-01-18  16:36                15 file
2007-01-18  16:36                 4 filelink
               2 File(s)             19 bytes
               2 Dir(s)   2,558,922,752 bytes free

X:\directorylink>type file
this is a test

X:\directorylink>type filelink

Wow - sorry about that, that's certainly a cut & paste error. But the
end result appears to match current 2.6, which was the intent.

I really don't know the correct answer to that, I was merely copying
the 2.6 flags.

Don't waste your time on this one, it did not work.

Willy: I'll do some more testing and get you a patch that fixes this

Since the double assignment is not a bug per se, don't bother making a
separate patch, put everything in the same one.

Thanks a lot for your very fast response !

It seems to me that there is a difference, because filelink now appears the
same size as file. It's just as if we had hard links instead of symlinks.

At least, directories appear as hard links too.

Hi Willy,

No, those dir and files were created server-side, sorry I gave wrong 
impression, I still get on client side:

grant@sempro:/home/other$ uname -r
2.4.34b
grant@sempro:/home/other$ mkdir test
grant@sempro:/home/other$ ln -s test testlink
ln: creating symbolic link `testlink' to `test': Operation not permitted
grant@sempro:/home/other$ echo "this is also a test" > test/file
grant@sempro:/home/other$ ln -s test/file test2
ln: creating symbolic link `test2' to `test/file': Operation not permitted

trying to create symlinks.

No problems creating symlinks with 2.4.33.3.

Grant.

Hi again!

I tried to replicate the problem at home during the weekend with my laptop,
but I couldn't get it to show links with previous kernels, so I guess I had
something different on my samba server or similar, I'm at the real machines
now so I have done the real tests and they look promising. I'm getting
completely different results than those of Grant, which seems really weird.

I applied just this patch:

To an unpatched 2.4.34, the client is an IBM NetworkStation 1000 (a PowerPC
based thin client), and the server is a normal amd64 based PC running
2.6.19.1, both running Debian, the client runs Sarge and the Server Etch.
I'm descriving this to see if differences on the architectures could be
causing the differences on behaviour between my tests and Grant's.

Here is what I did, I mounted the remote filesystem on /mnt on my client,
the share on the server has a normal Debian Sarge PowerPC filesystem on it.

$ pwd

As you can see I now can see the symbolic links perfectly and they work as
expected.

In fact, this patch is working so well that it poses a security risk, as now
the devices on my /mnt/dev directory are not only seen as devices (like they
were seen on 2.4.33) but they also work (which didn't happen on 2.4.33).

So... for me now the remote filesystem works as if it was a local
filesystem, without any difference of behaviour, not even on special files
like devices or whatever.

As I said before... this behaviour of having the remote device files work...
seems a security problem and I don't think is desirable, other than that it
seems to work well on my PowerPC, I'll try to run the tests on a normal x86
client and report back.

Regards...

Why do you consider this a security problem ? Is any user able to create a
device entry with enough permissions ? As a general rule of thumb, networked
file systems should be mounted with the "nodev" option.

Thanks very much for your tests.

Grant, just to be sure, are you really certain that you tried the fixed kernel ?
It is possible that you booted a wrong kernel during one of your tests. I'm
intrigued by the fact that it changed nothing for you and that it fixed the
problem for Santiago.

Best regards,
Willy

You are completely right on that, it is just that I thought those devices
didn't work on 2.4.33, but I just retested again and they work ok, only that
they were not working to me on the PC I tested the other day and it was
because of a nodev option :-) just that.

So... I have finised with my tests, I have tested an x86 client on which it
worked ok, just like on the PowerPC client, both working perfectly just like
they used to do on 2.4.33.

Maybe he had also applied some of the earlier patches you had sent and that
I did not apply to mine?

Just to clear things up a bit, I'm sure I'm with the 2.4.34 kernel and...
I'm running a pristine kernel with just this latest patch applied, the one
that changes S_IFREG for (fattr->f_mode & S_IFMT).

Closest I get to Santiago's results are with the 2.4.33.7 plus the patch, 
with 'use default NLS' option turned on, as well as the unix extensions.

2.4.34 was a no go for me.  Changing the default NLS made no difference, 
now trying with unix extensions turned on. . .  Yeah, that works, apart 
from the test file gaining execute bits, compared to operation under 
2.4.33.3, this is 2.4.34 + patch + default NLS and unix extensions:

grant@sempro:/home/other$ cat dirlink/filelink
this is a test
grant@sempro:/home/other$ echo "this is a test" > testfile
grant@sempro:/home/other$ ls -l
total 4096
drwxr-xr-x 1 grant wheel  0 2007-01-21 11:44 dir/
lrwxr-xr-x 1 grant wheel  3 2007-01-21 11:43 dirlink -> dir/
-rwxr-xr-x 1 grant wheel 15 2007-01-21 11:43 file*
lrwxr-xr-x 1 grant wheel  4 2007-01-21 11:44 filelink -> file*
drwxr-xr-x 1 grant wheel  0 2007-01-22 10:45 test/
-rwxr-xr-x 1 grant wheel 15 2007-01-22 21:31 testfile*
lrwxr-xr-x 1 grant wheel  4 2007-01-22 21:29 testlink -> test/
grant@sempro:/home/other$ ln -s testfile testfilelink
grant@sempro:/home/other$ cat testfilelink
this is a test


The fix depends on the smbfs configuration?  Is this the requirement?
I ask as the other mode of operation (unix extensions turned off): do 
not display symlinks, prevent creation of symlinks, seems to be logically 
self-consistent, as well as matching what I see from a 'doze box.

Grant.

Same kernel + patch here for latest results posting :)  We seem to get 
similar results now -- though I query the file execute bits coming up.

Yes, I've found that this varies depending upon the options passed. If
uid=0, I can create symlinks, otherwise I always get permission
denied. This behavior appears to be consistent with 2.6.

I also need to do some testing with the proposed patch to smbmount
that will let you omit options (current versions will always pass an
option to the kernel, even if you the user did not provide one).
If you do not pass options, the behavior should fallback to
server-provided values.

Note that this bug has been my only interaction with smbfs, so I'm
certainly no expert on how it *should* behave. My plan is to
take all of the use cases we're coming up with and try to maintain
the "historic" 2.4 behavior as much as possible, but still not
silently dropping user-provided mount options. When the behavior needs
to change to honor them, I'll try to match what current 2.6
does. Make sense?

Yes, it does for me. So to sum up, I apply your patch to 2.4.34.1
and it restores the same behaviour for Santiago and Grant as they get
in 2.6. Whether it's the expected behaviour or not is not the point,
as it will be easier for us to later mimic 2.6 if a change is needed
since we're not experts at all in this area.

If we're all OK for this, I'll go with that.

Thanks guys,
Willy

I was running into this yesterday - turns out that Debian's current
smbfs package contains a patch that checks for user passed options,
and disables unix capabilities in that case. It was added in
3.0.14a-4. I've filed a bug requesting the removal of this patch:
  http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=408033

Grant: Do you know if are you running a version of smbfs w/ this
       patch?

Users have reported a symlink issue with my recent smbfs backport.
Turns out my backport overlooked a second 2.6 patch w/ the fix:
 http://linux.bkbits.net:8080/linux-2.6/?PAGE=cset&REV=419e7b76CdrmRG_NZ8LKj9DUUBGu1w

This is a backport of Haroldo Gamal's 2.6 patch that fixes the symlink
issue, and also cleans up an unnecessary double assignment. As his
commit message notes, you will need the userspace patches from Samba
Bug #999 in order to use the permission/ownership assigned by the
server.

Thanks again Grant. You might check out the patch I just submitted -
turns out this was an issue that was already fixed in 2.6, and that
fix is more complete than my previous one. You'll need the additional
userspace patches to use the server-provided perms (i.e., get rid of
the +x bits).
