Supervisor Mode Access Prevention

Supervisor Mode Access Prevention is a feature of some CPU implementations such as the Intel Broadwell microarchitecture that allows supervisor mode programs to optionally set user-space memory mappings so that access to those mappings from supervisor mode will cause a trap. This makes it harder for malicious programs to "trick" the kernel into using instructions or data from a user-space program. Supervisor Mode Access Prevention is designed to complement Supervisor Mode Execution Prevention, introduced earlier. SMEP can be used to prevent supervisor mode from unintentionally executing user-space code. SMAP writes. Without Supervisor Mode Access Prevention, supervisor code has full read and write access to user-space memory mappings; this has led to the development of several security exploits, including privilege escalation exploits, which operate by causing the kernel to access user-space memory when it did not intend to. Operating systems can block these exploits by using SMAP to force unintended user-space memory accesses to trigger page faults.

Additionally, SMAP can expose flawed kernel code which does not follow the intended procedures for accessing user-space memory. However, the use of SMAP in an operating system may lead to a larger kernel size and slower user-space memory accesses from supervisor code, because SMAP must be temporarily disabled any time supervisor code intends to access user-space memory. Processors indicate support for Supervisor Mode Access Prevention through the Extended Features CPUID leaf. SMAP is enabled when memory paging is active and the SMAP bit in the CR4 control register is set. SMAP can be temporarily disabled for explicit memory accesses by setting the EFLAGS. AC flag; the stac and clac instructions can be used to set or clear the flag. When the SMAP bit in CR4 is set, explicit memory reads and writes to user-mode pages performed by code running with a privilege level less than 3 will always result in a page fault if the EFLAGS. AC flag is not set. Implicit reads and writes to user-mode pages will always trigger a page fault if SMAP is enabled, regardless of the value of EFLAGS.

AC. Linux kernel support for Supervisor Mode Access Prevention was implemented by H. Peter Anvin, it was merged into the mainline Linux 3.7 kernel and it is enabled by default for processors which support the feature. FreeBSD has supported Supervisor Mode Execution Prevention since 2012 and Supervisor Mode Access Prevention since 2018. OpenBSD has supported Supervisor Mode Access Prevention and the related Supervisor Mode Execution Prevention since 2012, with OpenBSD 5.3 being the first release with support for the feature enabled. NetBSD support for Supervisor Mode Execution Prevention was implemented by Maxime Villard in December 2015. Support for Supervisor Mode Access Prevention was implemented by Maxime Villard, in August 2017. NetBSD 8.0 was the first release with both features enabled. Haiku support for Supervisor Mode Execution Prevention was implemented by Jérôme Duval in January 2018Windows 10 support for Supervisor Mode Access Prevention will be implemented with version 19H1, which will be released in first half of 2019.macOS has support for SMAP at least since macOS 10.13 released 2017.

2 (Mac DeMarco album)

2 is the debut full-length studio album by Canadian musician Mac DeMarco. It was released in October 2012 on the Captured Tracks label. DeMarco moved from Vancouver to Montreal in 2011. There, he recorded an EP under his own name and Roll Nightclub. Featuring slowed-down vocals and elements of glam rock, this recording garnered enough attention that his label, Captured Tracks, agreed to finance a full-length album. DeMarco shifted his style from Rock and Roll Nightclub to 2, his glam and crooning singing style were dropped for a more standard approach to guitar rock; the album was recorded in DeMarco's Montreal apartment, in the Mile End neighbourhood. DeMarco made underwear. In a June 2012 interview, DeMarco announced; the album contains a single acoustic track, "Still Together", a re-recording of "Together", written by DeMarco on 2009 to Makeout Videotape EP "Bossa Yeye" features DeMarco using falsetto singing in the chorus. The opener, "Cooking Up Something Good", uses a song structure where a catchy verse transitions to a "blindsiding" darker chorus.

"Robson Girl" juxtaposes a "sweet" verse with a guitar-shredding chorus. Lyrically, DeMarco covers growing up in suburbia, failed love and family secrets, the last featuring in "Cooking Up Something Good". "Ode to Viceroy" is a tribute to the singer's favourite brand of cigarettes. DeMarco is apologizing to his mother in "Freaking Out the Neighbourhood", trying to convince a girl to leave town with him in "The Stars Keep on Calling My Name". In September 2014, DeMarco stated in a "What's in My Bag?" Interview video at Amoeba Records in San Francisco, California that he had been inspired by the album art for Haruomi Hosono's Hosono House for the design of 2’s album cover. In the same interview, DeMarco points out his cover’s striking but coincidental similarity to Bruce Springsteen's The River; the album was compared by several reviewers to Days. NME likened him to fictional character Ferris Bueller. DeMarco's guitar work was praised by several reviewers; the Guardian remarked that, although the initial tracks have promise, the album "never quite delivers" and criticised its "unvarying" tone.

Pitchfork gave an enthusiastic review. Reviewer Sam Hockley-Smith commented positively on DeMarco's lyrical depth; the website placed the album at 43rd on their "50 Best Albums of the Year" retrospective. The album was named a longlisted nominee for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize on June 13, 2013; the album was recognized as one of The 100 Best Albums of the Decade So Far, a list published by Pitchfork in August 2014. In 2019, Pitchfork ranked the album at number 149 on their list of "The 200 Best Albums of the 2010s". All tracks are written by Mac DeMarco
