Bug Description

SRU Justification:

Impact: Due to kernel changes for CVE-2010-3081 a function that was an inline before has changed to a GPL only function. The fglrx driver cannot link against this and fails to compile. In fglrx only the old inlines (which have been renamed) may be used but those would lack the additional checks.

Fix: Add code to detect whether the fglrx driver is compiled against a kernel which has this change and use the old inlines in this case. Add the additional checks from the CVE to the driver wrapper, so the hardening is done in any case.

Testcase: Compile of 64bit fglrx driver fails with an error without this change.

will not compile for this version of the linux kernal

Evan Broder (broder) wrote :

This may be ever so slightly tricky. CVE-2010-3081 was a bug in compat_alloc_user_space, which is the function that compilation is erroring out on.

Previously, compat_alloc_user_space was implemented per-architecture, but after the patch, the per-architecture function was renamed to arch_compat_alloc_user_space, and a new function compat_alloc_user_space wraps arch_compat_alloc_user_space.

Unfortunately, though, whoever wrote this patch decided that the new compat_alloc_user_space would be exported as a GPL-only symbol, and fglrx is obviously not a GPL module, which means it's not allowed to use the new compat_alloc_user_space symbol.

Evan Broder (broder) wrote :

There was a thread about this interaction between compat_alloc_user_space and fglrx on the LKML: http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=128477416507390&w=2, although the replies don't suggest a particularly good fix other than getting help from ATI.

Evan Broder (broder) wrote :

Well, here's one option. Since CVE-2010-3081 was about not checking access_ok() on the return value from (arch_)compat_alloc_user_space, we can add that check to KCL_IOCTL_AllocUserSpace32, use arch_compat_alloc_user_space, and side-step the GPL-only-ness of compat_alloc_user_space. It's not pretty, and could be dangerous if there are future security-related changes to the new compat_alloc_user_space.

This patch re-writes KCL_IOCTL_AllocUserSpace32 to use arch_compat_alloc_user_space and check access_ok(). Currently it will only compile on kernels with the CVE-2010-3081 patch; it would need to be tweaked to use compat_alloc_user_space if arch_compat_alloc_user_space isn't defined.

Find the file /usr/src/fglrx-{version}/kcl_ioctl.c and do the change above,then reinstall your linux image package or fglrx-* package but not fglrx. Now reboot your system it will be ok.

But I can't understand why the function KCL_IOCTL_AllocUserSpace32(long size) call itself without any condition.Will it make infinite call?

Anders Kaseorg (andersk) wrote :

Qihe: You are correct, that is an infinite loop. Use Evan’s patch instead.

Evan: You forgot to add the patch to dkms.conf.in, though. (You probably want to use a clever PATCH_MATCH regex that applies it only for kernels that have arch_compat_alloc_user_space.)

Evan Broder (broder) wrote :

New version of the patch. General idea is the same, but this one detects at build-time whether it's running on a pre-CVE-2010-3081 or post-CVE-2010-3081 kernel, and chooses between compat_alloc_user_space and arch_compat_alloc_user_space appropriately.

(As an extra feature, if you're on a pre-CVE-2010-3081 kernel, fglrx will now be shielded from the vulnerability at that particular call site)

Evan Broder (broder) wrote :

Oh, and to reply to Anders' comments, the patch was added to dkms.conf.in. It's at the very top of the debdiff, and is easy to miss. And I can't use PATCH_MATCH in this particular fix, because PATCH_MATCH matches on `uname -r`, which could be anything, since the fix for this CVE hit a bunch of stable releases.

Evan:

I used your patch: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer/+bug/642518/+attachment/1607184/+files/fglrx-installer_8.723.1-0ubuntu5.debdiff

Everything works nicely. You can further install the ATI control panel if desired with the ATI installer from their respective website. Just do not have it install the driver and everything is golden.

Aaron (soulblade) wrote :

Rolling back to the following packages resolves the issue for me:

linux-headers-2.6.32-23
linux-headers-2.6.32-23-generic
linux-image-2.6.32-23-generic

Since 2.6.32-23 works and 2.6.32-24 does not. Is this a regression introduce by Linux 2.6.32-24 rather than the drivers?

I have done some tests with the results below:

ATI 10.9 + 2.6.32-24 = Error
ATI 10.9 + 2.6.32-23 = No issue
ATI 10.5 + 2.6.32-24 = Error
ATI 10.5 + 2.6.32-23 = No issue
8.723-1 + 2.6.23-24 = Error
8.723-1 + 2.6.23-23 = No issue

It works perfectly.

For less experienced users, the following commands to apply the patch:

# In your home directory...

# to apply patch, if not already installed...
sudo apt-get install build-essential fakeroot devscripts

# In your home directory...
mkdir fglrx-installer
cd fglrx-installer

# download patch
wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer/+bug/642518/+attachment/1607184/+files/fglrx-installer_8.723.1-0ubuntu5.debdiff

# get sources
apt-get source fglrx

# get depends
sudo apt-get build-dep fglrx

# patch it...
cd fglrx-installer*-* && patch -p1 < ../fglrx-installer_8.723.1-0ubuntu5.debdiff

# rebuild..
debuild -uc -us

# to install patched files..
sudo dpkg -i ../fglrx*.deb

I used this method and it works for me now!

I also have no issue with ATI 10.9 + 2.6.32-23 or ATI 10.8 + 2.6.32-23 kernel. Does the patch only works for the fglrx version from Ubuntu repositories? Is there a workaround for the problem due to 2.6.32-24 kernel? Maybe we can generate packages with ATI 10.9 driver instead of installing driver directly than use the same patch for this driver?

Will this patch work also on new kernels? or should I avoid to upgrade the kernel since the bug is fixed?

Note that the original patch was proposed by Evan Broder.

I just indicated how to apply it more easily.

For safety, it is possible to lock the version of the fglrx packages until the patch is added to the usual update.

In principle, the patch makes the difference between the preceding and following kernels CVE-2010-3081 (2.6.32-24.43).

For the problem reported by Philippe Lefebvre, it is possible that DKMS can not correctly compile the new module fglrx because the files from the old version are still present.

Note that Catalyst overwrites or diverts some libraries with proprietary versions (Troubleshooting when -fglrx Interferes with -radeon Driver - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/FglrxInteferesWithRadeonDriver ).

Check DKMSBuildLog.

Check version numbers.

Thanks to Luc Bruninx for posting the step by step, as I am also now inspired to get get a bit smarter about the Debian package management system... I need more free time in my life for these kinds of things.

Also, I encountered this issue after blanket upgrading what the upgrade manager said was ready and that included the linux-image package for 2.6.32-25-generic #44-Ubuntu SMP Fri Sep 17 20:05:27 UTC 2010 x86_64, so to Ricardo's question it seems like the answer is yes.

Bohdan:

You have this error message:

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of fglrx-amdcccle

You should completely uninstall fglrx before apply the patch.

look at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/FglrxInteferesWithRadeonDriver

Stefan Bader (smb) wrote :

Some comment to the problem and info from discussing this on irc (I have not read through all comments, so sorry if some facts are duplicated). The problem we are facing is the fact that for resolving the security issue, upstream patches changed compat_alloc_user_space from being an inlined function, that gets defined in asm/compat.h, into a real function defined in kernel/compat.c and declared in linux/compat.h. Even worse the function is exported GPL only (EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL).

This is no issue for code that is GPL, but fglrx has no part that is GPL. Even when we change the export to be EXPORT_SYMBOL, there still seems to be the problem that linux/compat.h cannot be included from a non-gpl module.
And as this change did not change things for GPL code, there was no ABI bump required which could be used to decide whether the old code is in use or the new one.

It seems there is one potential solution to this: as compat_alloc_user_space was an inline before it would not show up in /proc/kallsyms. So the makefile for fglrx can look there do decide whether is needs to adapt. In the new code the former compat_alloc_user_space can now be accessed through arch_compat_alloc_user_space. But to benefit from the security fix, the checking from that update should also be added.

Luc Bruninx I was aplayng the patch as you described at post #14 without errors but I receive this message when I start Catalyst Control Center:
"There was a problem initializing Catalyst Control Center Linux edition. It could be caused by the following.

No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning properly.
Please install the ATI driver appropriate for you ATI hardware, or configure using aticonfig."
And full screen on youtube dosen't work like when I dosen't have the driver.

Fixed with Luc Bruninx info at post #14, after that I reconfigure x whit "sudo aticonfig --force --initial" and reboot. Now It's working thank you all!

I'm not certain if it's anything different; however, to get my ATI driver
working again, I had to select 'Troubleshoot' from the menu when it detected
the driver error, and manually set the driver config file to read "normal"
for rotation vice "right".

Also, when I now go back into the Catalyst Control Center, if I try to
rotate the screen again it gives the following error:

Current settings can not be applied. Possible issues include:
   Display(s) cannot be enabled
   Setting(s) cannot be applied due to insufficient video memory

Thanks and regards,

Gary

hey peeps i posted this and this below is from my make log i did another clean format and install to see what happen after installing the extra updates and the extra files needed for ati and i got this from my make log
The card im useing is the HD4650 1024 onboard memory the make log i tracked down the error this is kinda long but sorry thought it might be usefull. desktop works but not effects or rendering can be done so im going to wait for a patch update and see what happens.

Oh FYI this last time (3rd try) i installed the package from ati with no relief. infact it did not officially install. this is the error from the make log

Hi, All! I read through many of the posts here, but I'm not sure if my issue is unique or not... Yesterday morning I was prompted to upgrade to most recent FGLRX driver, then reboot. After reboot audio devices were missing, both motherboard (primary) and HDMI audio (not used). After second reboot to troubleshoot my situation I found the the graphics performance was degraded to slideshow levels, and audio still does not function.

It would appear that since my audio and graphics were working fine with the previous driver, I should not have 'upgraded' at all. I see from what has been posted that it just seems to be an issue of scripting the ATi Catalyst install in such a manner to prevent a possible exploit taking place also overlooked that the distribution of the driver might need to check more than one place for resources.

I'm just wondering though if anyone else had issues with audio, and if so, whether those issues were resolved by the latest fix in the Ubuntu repositories as noted above. Thanks!

SRU verification for Karmic:
I have reproduced the problem with fglrx-installer 2:8.660-0ubuntu4 in karmic and have verified that the version of fglrx-installer 2:8.660-0ubuntu4.1 in -proposed fixes the issue.
The module builds fine but I have not been able to test it because I'm affected by bug 284408 in Karmic (that's not a regression because the previous version can't be loaded)

well, windoze has nothing to do with that.
removing windows destroys systems because
they use worse filesystems.
what you are decribing is just probability.
no one needs windoze, believe me.

A new install from the 64bit Ubuntu mini installation with LXDE then installed, then installed FGLRX (2:8.723.1-0ubuntu5). Then had to bash "sudo aticonfig --force --initial" to get xorg.conf set up and then reboot. All working as good as gold now.

Just a little Linux speed bump, nothing overly disastrous.

I am very impressed with this support process, thank you.

After trying many possible ways to solve my problem I finally found a way of making my ATI Radeon HD 4xxx series to work on my Dell Studio 1557 with Ubuntu 10.04.1 x64bit and also "silence" the fan that was loud and annoying:

1) I had the most resent updates available, installed
2) Downloaded the 2.6.34 mainline kernel from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.34-lucid/
3) Installed them, reboot.
4) Downloaded the official ATI driver from the official website
5) Run in terminal " sudo ./ati-driver-installer-10-9-x86.x86_64.run "
6) Choose "Build for detected OS Ubuntu/lucid"
7) Installed the generated packages except fglrx-dev*.deb
8) Run in the same terminal "sudo aticonfig --initial"
9) Reboot. Everything is OK, Compiz working, fan is silent... and I am happy..

I think my issue is related to the previous ones in this thread. 1st to begin with I have an ATI HD Radeon 5000 series and i'm running 10.04 AMD_64. After installing ubuntu I used Jockey (Ubuntu Control Center > Hardware Drivers) to update my graphics card. but I got an error message:

Code:
package fglrx 2:8.721-0ubuntu8 failed to install/upgrade: fglrx kernel module failed to build
Couple of days afterwards, an update was released, and the package is now fglrx 2:8.723.1-0ubuntu5. There was also an update for the kernel 2.6.32.25.27.

Following the instructions from http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9209703&postcount=16 and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/FglrxInteferesWithRadeonDriver I was able to update the driver and I think its working correctly.

Now here are my issues.
1- The video is very laggy with compiz and videos. I used Google Earth to sometimes determine if the driver is not working very well. There are evidents cuts in the reendering of the images, when I use compiz show desktop, there is an evident lag, and the effects are visibly not working as they supposed to be. Unfortunately this issue is very hard to document, and not sure how to.

2- I decided to update to a newer driver using the X UPDATES PPA that has fglrx-installer 2:8.780-0ubuntu1. The problem with that update is that, after reboot, I only have a black screen. When I go to recovery, and go to ACCC with sudo rights it acts like fglrx and amdccle are not there.

Code:
$ sudo aticonfig --initial
Found fglrx primary device section
 Unable to find any supported Screen sections

I tried also what post #116 did, by upgrading the exact same kernel, and I tried to reinstall the fglrx packages, with that new kernel, I only get a black screen, with a loud fan noise, I also tried with the new kernel, w...

This seems to still be an issue for me... Perhaps there is something that, being an absolute newb, I am thoroughly overlooking. For that I sincerely apologize, but I would like just a bit of assistance if possible.

After several attempts neither Synaptic Package Manager nor Update Manager will complete either an Installation or Removal of whichever version of fglrx is currently on my system. So I'm hoping there is a way to take care of this from the command line.

According to Synaptic Package Manager the latest version of fglrx is '2:8.723.1-0ubuntu5 (lucid-updates)'. What should I type into Terminal to either Force or Fix the installation of that specific version of fglrx? Alternatively, how do I revert to whatever my most recent driver configuration that worked may have been (from about mid-July) instead?

I'm thinking it might be something along the lines of 'sudo apt-get -f install [package name]' to accomplish the feat. Can anyone advise me as to whether it should be a full package I acquire in this manner, or individual components of it instead? Any help would be very much appreciated.

What makes this so extra special super happy fun time is the fact that I can neither install or uninstall anything else because some script somewhere on my system is still trying to install the original 'new' fglrx that keeps failing. So this one update has destroyed my ability to update anything else at all. Even when it is marked to be left 'as is' within Synaptic Package Manager, the first thing that happens when I click Apply is that I get the now overly familiar error message that reads cryptically, 'E: /var/cache/apt/archives/fglrx_2%3a8.723.1-0ubuntu5_i386.deb: subprocess new pre-installation script returned error exit status 1' ... Joy.

I don't intend to give up on Ubuntu, but at this point it seems I may have to finally give up on AMD/ATi in favor of Intel/nVidia. That really would make for a sad day in terms of my personal sense of independence. Before I go out and buy new hardware though, I may instead simply reinstall Ubuntu from scratch, but I'd like to avoid that as well, assuming it is not absolutely necessary. Thanks, everyone!

I made a copy of the 'ati' folder that I found at /usr/share/ati and placed it in my own 'Documents' folder. Then I renamed the original folder:

Then the system allowed me to complete the installation of the current fglrx driver. I'll reboot and see what happens. Wish me luck!

x-swat driver is not ready to be used for the ati card at this time. find a point that works and stick with it for now..
Ive got x-swat disabled for now.

Your mobility ati could be another issue that the Ubuntu team need to deal with if the 2:8.723.1-0ubuntu4 driver is working and glx gears is showing 4k much better then what i was getting i was showing 350fps after the 8.723 with no issues then after the 8.78 driver update it went 10-15kfps every 5 seconds.but that could be the dirrence in the computers with mobility and full scale card.

if your hitting a brick wall after the 8.78 update leave it at the 8.723 for now till they get the issue resolved..

I didnt hit the black screen till i updated to the x-swat driver and i had to fix it by doing everything rescue dropped to root prompt with networking. that was a pain but at least i got it straight. One thing to attempt still is purge the repo drivers then install the x-swat to see if it works post 14 will not update after this error is developed infact your lucky to get anything to work till the purge is done.
If you get any dependacy issues then
sudo apt-get install
after the dendancy notice is given and it will backtrace to whats needed and install it from what ive seen once already.
Also if your useing kdm and kde4.5 32bit your gonna have problems im not sure what OP SYS youre useing if your on lucid ubuntu then there again could be the diffrence of Mobility and Standard gpu

Any of the dev team checked the 2:8.78 -0ubuntu5 driver on a mobility gpu yet?
Im not a developer but i do like troubleshooting and see what works i just dont have a mobility laptop to test with mines an intell :-/ machine

The Ati's hotfix worked for me too, but I had to generate and use the packages for Ubuntu/lucid too. With the generated packages I run ati-driver-installer-8.771.2-x86.x86_64.run and installed it normally. After the installation finished I installed the generated packages in the following order:
fglrx
fglrx-dev
fglrx-amdcccle
fglrx-modaliases
The last step was running the "aticonfig --initial" command.
This way worked for me, installing the ati-driver-installer-8.771.2-x86.x86_64.run without the packages haven't worked for me.
Nevertheless, the first time I rebooted the system, the login screen was not shown. I used the RESET BUTTON and the problem got "solved".

all i can really say is Kubuntu 10.04 32bit here i come and gonna stick it out for a while at least i can say its stable and works well. I may consider trying the 10.10 Kubuntu 32bit on a diffrent partition but upgrade for now out of the question for me.

> Impact: Due to kernel changes for CVE-2010-3081 a function that was an inline before has changed to a GPL only function. The fglrx driver cannot link against this and fails to compile. In fglrx only the old inlines (which have been renamed) may be used but those would lack the additional checks.

From the things that are in the jockey log it feels like this is not something
which this bug report was about (which was the dkms module did not compile). The
only thing seen in the log is that jockey does not find the module, which could
be anything from the compile failure to the dkms source being removed. Have you
tried to disable and re-enable the driver in jockey? Generally it would be
better to open a new bug. It still can be linked back to this one, if it is
really the same issue, but it give a clean space for gathering information.
