[PATCH 4.9 17/25] ima: do not update security.ima if appraisal status is not INTEGRITY_PASS

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

4.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Roberto Sassu <roberto.sassu@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 020aae3ee58c1af0e7ffc4e2cc9fe4dc630338cb upstream.

Commit b65a9cfc2c38 ("Untangling ima mess, part 2: deal with counters")
moved the call of ima_file_check() from may_open() to do_filp_open() at a
point where the file descriptor is already opened.

This breaks the assumption made by IMA that file descriptors being closed
belong to files whose access was granted by ima_file_check(). The
consequence is that security.ima and security.evm are updated with good
values, regardless of the current appraisal status.

For example, if a file does not have security.ima, IMA will create it after
opening the file for writing, even if access is denied. Access to the file
will be allowed afterwards.

Avoid this issue by checking the appraisal status before updating
