Commit Message

From: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@redhat.com>

At the start, drop membership of all supplementary groups. This is
not required.

If we have membership of "root" supplementary group and when we switch
uid/gid using setresuid/setsgid, we still retain membership of existing
supplemntary groups. And that can allow some operations which are not
normally allowed.

For example, if root in guest creates a dir as follows.

$ mkdir -m 03777 test_dir

This sets SGID on dir as well as allows unprivileged users to write into
this dir.

And now as unprivileged user open file as follows.

$ su test
$ fd = open("test_dir/priviledge_id", O_RDWR|O_CREAT|O_EXCL, 02755);

This will create SGID set executable in test_dir/.

And that's a problem because now an unpriviliged user can execute it,
get egid=0 and get access to resources owned by "root" group. This is
privilege escalation.
