For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories,
including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the
following sections, please visit <URL:https://security.FreeBSD.org/>.

I.   Background

POSIX shared memory objects allow realtime inter-process communication by
sharing a memory area through the use of a named path (see shm_open(2)).

This is used by some multi-process applications to share data between running
processes, such as a common cache or to implement a producer-consumer model
where several worker processes handle requests pushed by a producer process.

II.  Problem Description

Named paths are globally scoped, meaning a process located in one jail can
read and modify the content of POSIX shared memory objects created by a
process in another jail or the host system.

III. Impact

A malicious user that has access to a jailed system is able to abuse shared
memory by injecting malicious content in the shared memory region.  This
memory region might be executed by applications trusting the shared memory,
like Squid.

This issue could lead to a Denial of Service or local privilege escalation.

IV.  Workaround

No workaround is available, but systems without jails or jails not having
local users are not vulnerable.

V.   Solution

1) Upgrade your vulnerable system to a supported FreeBSD stable or
release / security branch (releng) dated after the correction date.
Reboot the system for the update to take effect.

2) To update your vulnerable system via a binary patch:

Systems running a RELEASE version of FreeBSD on the i386 or amd64
platforms can be updated via the freebsd-update(8) utility:

# freebsd-update fetch
# freebsd-update install
Reboot the system for the update to take effect.

3) To update your vulnerable system via a source code patch:

The following patches have been verified to apply to the applicable
FreeBSD release branches.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

[FreeBSD 10.4, FreeBSD 10-STABLE]
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-17:09/shm-10.patch
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-17:09/shm-10.patch.asc
# gpg --verify shm-10.patch.asc

[FreeBSD 10.3]
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-17:09/shm-10.3.patch
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-17:09/shm-10.3.patch.asc
# gpg --verify shm-10.3.patch.asc

b) Apply the patch.  Execute the following commands as root:

# cd /usr/src
# patch < /path/to/patch

c) Recompile your kernel as described in
<URL:https://www.FreeBSD.org/handbook/kernelconfig.html> and reboot the
system.

VI.  Correction details

The following list contains the correction revision numbers for each
affected branch.

Branch/path                                                      Revision

To see which files were modified by a particular revision, run the
following command, replacing NNNNNN with the revision number, on a
machine with Subversion installed:

# svn diff -cNNNNNN --summarize svn://svn.freebsd.org/base

Or visit the following URL, replacing NNNNNN with the revision number:

<URL:https://svnweb.freebsd.org/base?view=revision&revision=NNNNNN>
