Bug Description


RestrictSUIDSGID (backported to Bionic in security CVE) fails 100% of the time on arm64, and testcase failure indicates this as well.

[test case]

check autopkgtest logs, e.g.

/* test_restrict_suid_sgid */
Failed to add suid/sgid rule for architecture arm64, skipping: Numerical argument out of domain
Assertion 'chmod(path, 0775 | S_ISUID) < 0 && errno == EPERM' failed at ../src/test/test-seccomp.c:823, function test_restrict_suid_sgid(). Aborting.
suidsgidseccomp terminated by signal ABRT.
Assertion 'wait_for_terminate_and_check("suidsgidseccomp", pid, WAIT_LOG) == EXIT_SUCCESS' failed at ../src/test/test-seccomp.c:889, function test_restrict_suid_sgid(). Aborting.
FAIL: test-seccomp (code: 134)
Aborted (core dumped)

[regression potential]

this improves the function that (tries to) install seccomp suid/sgid filters, so and regression would involve failure to restrict suid/sgid with seccomp filters; however on arm64, the this functionality already fails 100% of the time (which is what the failed test case was pointing out).


this fails only in Bionic, and this specific feature and testcase was backported in patches for CVE-2019-384x. It does not appear that the backported feature, or its testcase, ever passed in Bionic on arm64.

[other info]

systemd bionic arm64 autopkgtests have failed forever, but we should fix that.

Hello Dan, or anyone else affected,

Accepted systemd into bionic-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/systemd/237-3ubuntu10.40 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, what testing has been performed on the package and change the tag from verification-needed-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.
