CVE-2019-19241

Published: 17 December 2019

In the Linux kernel before 5.4.2, the io_uring feature leads to requests that inadvertently have UID 0 and full capabilities, aka CID-181e448d8709. This is related to fs/io-wq.c, fs/io_uring.c, and net/socket.c. For example, an attacker can bypass intended restrictions on adding an IPv4 address to the loopback interface. This occurs because IORING_OP_SENDMSG operations, although requested in the context of an unprivileged user, are sometimes performed by a kernel worker thread without considering that context.

From the Ubuntu security team

It was discovered that the IO uring implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly perform credentials checks in certain situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to gain administrative privileges.
