Hardware debug exception documentation may result in unexpected behavior

Vulnerability Note VU#631579

Original Release Date: 2018-05-08 | Last Revised: 2019-07-11

Overview

In some circumstances, some operating systems or hypervisors may not expect or properly handle an Intel architecture hardware debug exception. The error appears to be due to developer interpretation of existing documentation for certain Intel architecture interrupt/exception instructions, namely MOV SS and POP SS.

Description

CWE-703: Improper Check or Handling of Exceptional Conditions - CVE-2018-8897

The MOV SS and POP SS instructions inhibit interrupts (including NMIs), data breakpoints, and single step trap exceptions until the instruction boundary following the next instruction (SDM Vol. 3A; section 6.8.3). (The inhibited data breakpoints are those on memory accessed by the MOV SS or POP SS instruction itself). Note that debug exceptions are not inhibited by the interrupt enable (EFLAGS.IF) system flag (SDM Vol 3A; section 2.3).

If the instruction following the MOV SS or POP SS instruction is an instruction like SYSCALL, SYSENTER, INT 3, etc. that transfers control to the operating system at Current Privilege Level (CPL) < 3, a debug exception is delivered after the transfer to CPL < 3 is complete. Such deferred #DB exceptions by MOV SS and POP SS may result in unexpected behavior.

Therefore, in certain circumstances after the use of certain Intel x86-64 architecture instructions, a debug exception pointing to data in a lower ring (for most operating systems, the kernel Ring 0 level) is made available to operating system components running in Ring 3. This may allow an attacker to utilize operating system APIs to gain access to sensitive memory information or control low-level operating system functions.

Several operating systems appear to incorrectly handle this exception due to interpretation of potentially unclear existing documentation and guidance on the use of these instructions.

More details can be found in the researcher's paper.

Impact

An authenticated attacker may be able to read sensitive data in memory or control low-level operating system functions,

Xen

Notified:  May 01, 2018 Updated:  May 01, 2018

Statement Date:   May 01, 2018

Status

  Affected

Vendor Statement

All versions of Xen are vulnerable. Only x86 systems are vulnerable.  ARM systems are not vulnerable.

Only x86 PV guests can exploit the vulnerability.  x86 HVM and PVH guests cannot exploit the vulnerability.

An attacker needs to be able to control hardware debugging facilities to exploit the vulnerability, but such permissions are typically available to unprivileged users.
 

MITIGATION
==========

Running only HVM or PVH guests avoids the vulnerability.

Note however that a compromised device model (running in dom0 or a stub domain) can carry out this attack, so users with HVM domains are also advised to patch their systems.


RESOLUTION
==========
Applying the appropriate attached patch resolves this issue.
