Xen Security Advisory CVE-2021-28701 / XSA-384
version 3

Another race in XENMAPSPACE_grant_table handling

UPDATES IN VERSION 3
====================

Public release.

ISSUE DESCRIPTION
=================

Guests are permitted access to certain Xen-owned pages of memory. The
majority of such pages remain allocated / associated with a guest for
its entire lifetime. Grant table v2 status pages, however, are
de-allocated when a guest switches (back) from v2 to v1. Freeing
such pages requires that the hypervisor enforce that no parallel request
can result in the addition of a mapping of such a page to a guest. That
enforcement was missing, allowing guests to retain access to pages
that were freed and perhaps re-used for other purposes.

Unfortunately, when XSA-379 was being prepared, this similar issue was
not noticed.

IMPACT
======

A malicious guest may be able to elevate its privileges to that of the
host, cause host or guest Denial of Service (DoS), or cause information
leaks.

VULNERABLE SYSTEMS
==================

All Xen versions from 4.0 onwards are affected. Xen versions 3.4 and
older are not affected.

Only x86 HVM and PVH guests permitted to use grant table version 2
interfaces can leverage this vulnerability. x86 PV guests cannot
leverage this vulnerability. On Arm, grant table v2 use is explicitly
unsupported.

MITIGATION
==========

Running only PV guests will avoid this vulnerability.

Suppressing use of grant table v2 interfaces for HVM or PVH guests will
also avoid this vulnerability.

NOTE REGARDING EMBARGO
======================

Please note that the public embargo time for this advisory is
2021-09-08, two weeks later than XSA-378,379,380,382,383.

CREDITS
=======

This issue was discovered by Julien Grall of Amazon.

RESOLUTION
==========

Applying the appropriate attached patch resolves this issue.

Note that patches for released versions are generally prepared to
apply to the stable branches, and may not apply cleanly to the most
recent release tarball. Downstreams are encouraged to update to the
tip of the stable branch before applying these patches.

DEPLOYMENT DURING EMBARGO
=========================

Deployment of the patches and/or PV-guest-only mitigations described
above (or others which are substantially similar) is permitted during
the embargo, even on public-facing systems with untrusted guest users
and administrators.

HOWEVER, distribution of updated software is prohibited (except to other
members of the predisclosure list).

ADDITIONALLY, deployment of the grant table v2 disabling mitigation
described above *is* now (following the public release of XSA-379)
permitted during the embargo on public-facing systems with untrusted
guest users and administrators. This is because (although such a
configuration change is recognizable by the affected guests) it is a
mitigation recommended in XSA-379, so such a change would not reveal
the existence of a further problem.

Predisclosure list members who wish to deploy significantly different
patches and/or mitigations, please contact the Xen Project Security
Team.

(Note: this during-embargo deployment notice is retained in
post-embargo publicly released Xen Project advisories, even though it
is then no longer applicable. This is to enable the community to have
oversight of the Xen Project Security Team's decisionmaking.)

For more information about permissible uses of embargoed information,
consult the Xen Project community's agreed Security Policy:

软件描述

Xen 是一个开放源代码虚拟机监视器,由剑桥大学开发。它打算在单个计算机上运行多达100个满特征的操作系统。操作系统必须进行显式地修改(“移植”)以在Xen上运行(但是提供对用户应用的兼容性)。这使得Xen无需特殊硬件支持,就能达到高性能的虚拟化。
