FreeBSD Kernel SCTP Denial Of Service

FreeBSD Kernel SCTP Denial Of Service
Posted Aug 3, 2012
Authored by Shaun Colley

The SCTP implementation used by FreeBSD ("reference implementation") is vulnerable to a remote NULL pointer dereference in kernel due to a logic bug. When parsing ASCONF chunks, an attempt is made to find an association by address. if the address found is INADDR_ANY, sctp_findassoc_by_vtag() is called and an attempt is made to find an association by vtag. Before searching for the vtag in a hash table, a pointer is set to NULL, with the intention of redefining it after finding the association. However, if the specified vtag is not found, the function returns and the ptr is never reinitialized, causing a kernel panic when the NULL pointer is later dereferenced by the SCTP_INP_DECR_REF macro when flow returns to sctp_process_control(). This is a proof of concept denial of service exploit.

/*
* FreeBSD kernel SCTP (latest release) remote NULL ptr dereference DoS
*
* by Shaun Colley <scolley@ioactive.com>, 2 Aug 2012
*
* The SCTP implementation used by FreeBSD ("reference implementation") is vulnerable to a remote
* NULL pointer dereference in kernel due to a logic bug. When parsing ASCONF chunks, an attempt is
* made to find an association by address. if the address found is INADDR_ANY, sctp_findassoc_by_vtag()
* is called and an attempt is made to find an association by vtag. Before searching for the vtag in a
* hash table, a pointer is set to NULL, with the intention of redefining it after finding the association.
* However, if the specified vtag is not found, the function returns and the ptr is never reinitialised,
* causing a kernel panic when the NULL pointer is later dereferenced by the SCTP_INP_DECR_REF macro when
* flow returns to sctp_process_control().
*
* i.e.
*
* static struct sctp_tcb *
* sctp_findassoc_by_vtag(struct sockaddr *from, uint32_t vtag,
* struct sctp_inpcb **inp_p, struct sctp_nets **netp, uint16_t rport,
* uint16_t lport, int skip_src_check)
*
* {
*
* [ ... ]
*
* *netp = NULL;
* *inp_p = NULL;
*
* [ ... ]
*
* head = &sctppcbinfo.sctp_asochash[SCTP_PCBHASH_ASOC(vtag,
* 1690 sctppcbinfo.hashasocmark)];
* if (head == NULL) {
* // invalid vtag
* SCTP_INP_INFO_RUNLOCK();
* return (NULL);
* }
*
* The page fault is a write AV at 0x0 + 0x33c but since there is no associated user context, this
* doesn't appear to be exploitable (i.e. by mapping the NULL page)
*
* Tested against FreebSD 8.2-RELEASE but latest release is also vulnerable. The target system must have an open
* SCTP port
