An issue was found in the Nitro Enclaves kernel driver codebase [1] included in
the v5.10 upstream Linux kernel. The fix for it has been tested on the AWS side.
The issue does not break the isolation or security of what is running inside the
enclave. Nitro Enclaves already assumes that the instance running the Nitro
Enclaves kernel driver is untrusted.

We would like to thank Mathias Krause from Open Source Security, Inc. for
reporting and providing a fix for this issue directly to AWS.

The patch will be merged into the latest upstream Linux kernel release and into
the v5.10+ stable kernel releases.

Thanks,
Andra

From: Mathias Krause <minipli@grsecurity.net>

A failing usercopy of the slot uid will lead to a stale entry in the
file descriptor table as put_unused_fd() won't release it. This enables
userland to refer to a dangling 'file' object through that still valid
file descriptor, leading to all kinds of use-after-free exploitation
scenarios.

Exchanging put_unused_fd() for close_fd(), ksys_close() or alike won't
solve the underlying issue, as the file descriptor might have been
replaced in the meantime, e.g. via userland calling close() on it
(leading to a NULL pointer dereference in the error handling code as
'fget(enclave_fd)' will return a NULL pointer) or by dup2()'ing a
completely different file object to that very file descriptor, leading
to the same situation: a dangling file descriptor pointing to a freed
object -- just in this case to a file object of user's choosing.

Generally speaking, after the call to fd_install() the file descriptor
is live and userland is free to do whatever with it. We cannot rely on
it to still refer to our enclave object afterwards. In fact, by abusing
userfaultfd() userland can hit the condition without any racing and
abuse the error handling in the nitro code as it pleases.

To fix the above issues, defer the call to fd_install() until all
possible errors are handled. In this case it's just the usercopy, so do
it directly in ne_create_vm_ioctl() itself.
