Chrome OS: symlink traversal issue in /sbin/crash_reporter 




Tested on: Version 69.0.3473.0 (Official Build) dev (64-bit)

CreateDirectoryWithSettings() in <a href="https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromiumos/platform2/+/master/crash-reporter/crash_collector.cc#107" title="" class="" rel="nofollow">https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromiumos/platform2/+/master/crash-reporter/crash_collector.cc#107</a> is executed by /sbin/crash_reporter every time a coredump is generated. This code improperly performs ownership changes inside a directory hierarchy controlled by the "chronos" user. This allows an attacker with code exec as "chronos" to trivially change the ownership of arbitrary directories (and also files if you win a race condition) to "chronos":

chronos@localhost /home/user/<a href="https://crrev.com/98f63bfacd7086c303788fb107ff099ff85f3202" title="" class="" rel="nofollow">98f63bfacd7086c303788fb107ff099ff85f3202</a> $ rm -rf crash
