on trusty

apt-get download apparmor_2.10.95-0ubuntu2.6~14.04.2_amd64.ddb

dpkg -x apparmor... t

cat t/etc/apparmor.d/tunables/kernelvars


which is old one.

I checked apt-get source

There is correct file.

Could you please this one more time?

Bug description:

  If PID is larger than 6 digits apparmor denies process which only
  affect 64-bit systems[1] where the PID_MAX_LIMIT can be generated up
  to 7 digits at the maximum.

  This fix is committed, but not released. so all supporting version are

  [1] - man 5 proc

  /proc/sys/kernel/pid_max (since Linux 2.5.34)
  This file specifies the value at which PIDs wrap around (i.e., the value in 
this file is one greater than the maximum PID).  PIDs greater than this value 
are not allocated;  thus,  the value  in this file also acts as a system-wide 
limit on the total number of processes and threads.  The default value for this 
file, 32768, results in the same range of PIDs as on ear‐lier kernels.  On 
32-bit platforms, 32768 is the maximum value for pid_max.  On 64-bit systems, 
pid_max can be set to any value up to 2^22 (PID_MAX_LIMIT, approximately 4 

  [Test Case]

  1. making pid over 6 digits

  for i in {1..1000000}
    touch t

  2. snap install --dangerous core_16- ( snap core
  16-2.30 avoids using /proc/PID/cmdline, so need to use older version

  3. you can see DENIED msgs in syslog

  4. change /etc/apparmor.d/tunables/kernelvars
  5. service apparmor restart
  6. service snapd restart
  7. DENIED is gone

  This is one way, can't reproduce this issue again even if you change
  back to original kernelvars, and restart snapd


  instead of Seyeong's touch approach, things can be manually change to
  7 digits range via sysctl as long as the values are below
  approximately 4 millions :

  $ sysctl -w kernel.pid_max=3000000
  $ sysctl -w kernel.ns_last_pid=1000000

  * This is a minor/trivial fix which changes the pid regex only, allowing 7 
digits PID instead of only 6 digits PID, we don't think there is any potential 

  * If a regression arise, which we highly doubt, one can quickly revert
  the change manually and restart the service by modifying
  "/etc/apparmor.d/tunables/kernelvars" file to its original state
  (before this SRU).

  [Original Description]

  If your kernel.pid_max sysctl is set higher than the default, say at 7
  digits, the @{pid} variable no longer matches all pids, causing some
  breakage in any profile using it.

  @{pid} is defined in /etc/apparmor.d/tunables:

  It only covers up to 6 digits.

  This Ubuntu 17.04 system has:
  kernel.pid_max = 4194303

  And is showing
  type=1400 audit(1505588857.828:792): apparmor="DENIED" operation="open" 
name="/proc/2168180/task/2769256/comm" pid=2168180 comm="qemu-system-x86" 
requested_mask="wr" denied_mask="wr" fsuid=111 ouid=111

  Which should be matched by
  @{PROC}/sys/vm/overcommit_memory r,
  in /etc/apparmor.d/abstractions/libvirt-qemu

  I'm seeing similar failures on 16.04 (2.10.95-0ubuntu2.7), 17.04
  (2.11.0-2ubuntu4) and 17.10 (2.11.0-2ubuntu17)

  I am aware this is a non-default configuration, but I think this
  should work.
