Scripts shell, linux et unix: More on open later, when talking about the temporary files problem.

In more practical cases, this leads to applications misfunction, or to true security holes when a process wrongfully benefits from the privileges of the other. The method allowing to benefit from a security hole based on race condition is therefore boring and repetitive, but it really is usable! The general principle of race conditions is the following: Most of the time, an attack aiming to system security is done against Set-UID applications, since the attacker can run the program till he can benefit from the privileges given to the executable file’s owner.

In the previous situation, the change did not concern the file itself. Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go.

Let’s have a look at the behavior of a Set-UID program having to save data into a file belonging to the user. Are you an author? More exactly, it’s important to properly manage the risks of race conditions to the same file.

The kernel ensures to keep the association to the file content during the lapse of time between the open system call providing a file descriptor and the release of this descriptor using close or when the process ends. There chistophe two cchristophe of lock mostly incompatible with each other.

Please try your request again later. The directory having a full write access, each user can put his files in it, being sure they are protected – at least till the next clean up managed by the sysadmin.

Its first argument is the descriptor of the file you wish to access in an exclusive way, and the second one is a symbolic constant representing the operation to be done. Despite this reserve, this function is the most efficient. All the reading we’ll do christope will concern this file content, whatever happens to the name used for the file opening. When a process wants to write into a file, it asks the kernel to lock that file – or a part of it.

Next the unlink system call removes the original file and cbristophe renames the temporary file to replace the previous one.


The second type of lock comes from System V, and relies on the fcntl system call which invocation is a bit complicated. Unlike the security holes discussed in ours previous articles, this security problem applies to every application, and not only to Set-UID utilities and system servers or daemons. Thus, christo;he also possible to program a periodic cleaning using cronthe use of an independant partition formated at boot time, etc. These two operations have to be done in an atomic way, without any manipulation able to take place between them.

This function checks the file doesn’t exist before returning its name. The tempnam function returns a pointer to a string. As we can see, the chtistophe starts doing hcristophe the needed controls, checking that the file exists, that it belongs to the user and that it’s a normal file. Usually, the principle relies on a brutal attack, renewing the attempts hundred, thousand or ten thousand times, using scripts to automate the sequence.
