Sourceware 24259 0 P2 NEW Call _dl_open_check after relocation is finished, to deal with CET failures 2020-05-21 14:06:14 UTC

Description Carlos O'Donell 2019-02-25 22:35:15 UTC
When dlopening a shared object, _dl_open_check will throw an exception
if CET shadow stack is enabled and the shared object has no shadow stack
support.  dl_open_worker must call _dl_open_check after relocation is
finished.  Otherwise, the dependency shared objects may be mmapped
without relocation.  This will lead to run-time failure later when they
are needed by another dlopened shared object which is shadow stack



Comment 8 Florian Weimer 2019-08-30 11:18:12 UTC
Note: My understanding is that this bug is visible even on non-CET hardware because the CET markup is checked for consistency even in non-CET mode, which makes this bug visible on current x86 hardware.

    Call _dl_open_check after relocation [BZ #24259]
    This is a workaround for [BZ #20839] which doesn't remove the NODELETE
    object when _dl_open_check throws an exception.  Move it after relocation
    in dl_open_worker to avoid leaving the NODELETE object mapped without

Please also verify upstream branch backports:

release/2.30/master - May be required. Please check.
release/2.29/master - May be required. Please check.
release/2.28/master - May be required. Please check.

Backported to upstream 2.29 and 2.28
