This hopefully fixes the VERR_SUPDRV_APIPORT_OPEN_ERROR problem some of you have been seeing.
@quiettime, @sydbarrett74, @fhoff2: Would be cool to get feedback on that.


This build works for me, thank you for fixing the issue. What exactly did you do, and were you able to figure out what it is about my system that it uses a different object type? I'm a programmer and I'm curious about the technical details. If there's a commit behind it please point me to it. Thanks again

Enjoy,

Hello bird.

Thanks for the reply.
I installed VirtualBox-4.3.17-96087-Win.exe and my problems are gone

I really like the quick response and quick fix.
A lot of companies can learn alot from this :-)

Oh, hi,

4.3.17 build 96087
Windows 7 64 bit
McAffee (ver 8.0.0.2151, contains endpoit encription too)

When I start a VM:

Failed to verify process integrity: (rc-5633)
Next dialog:

The virtual machine 'BentlyTestPC' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1). More details may be available in 'C:\Users\105038609\VirtualBox VMs\BN3500 and System1\BentlyTestPC\Logs\VBoxStartup.log'.

Hi,

Thanks for your continuing efforts! 4.3.17 r96087 doesn't work for me, but the error is definitely different:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Gentoo32.

The virtual machine 'Gentoo32' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1). More details may be available in 'D:\vm2\Gentoo32\Logs\VBoxStartup.log'.

Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component: Machine
Interface: IMachine {480cf695-2d8d-4256-9c7c-cce4184fa048}

My Avast! virus definitions are now 140914-1, in case you're interested.

Re: Windows 4.3.16 specifically for errors due to security

Postby bird » 15. Sep 2014, 13:47

@quiettime: Glad to hear it works.
Background: I need to figure out which CSRSS.EXE process to allow a little extra access privileges to the VM process. There is one CSRSS per session, so with Vista+ there are generally at least two to choose from. More importantly I cannot allow myself to be fooled by fake CSRSS processes. Now, each csrss creates an ApiPort LPC/APLC port object in \Windows\ or \Sessions\x\Windows\ in the NT namespace. The object of course keeps track of which process created it, i.e. storing the EPROCESS pointer somewhere inside the object data. So, to positively identify the correct CSRSS I get the pointer to the ApiPort object for the VM process and checks if I can find the process pointer for CSRSS candidates inside it.

Now, to get to the ApiPort object I need the NT object type pointer. This is normally pointed to by the LpcPortObjectType export of ntoskrnl.exe. Except on your system it isn't. I've no idea why, that is so, I've got four theories: 1. The NT kernel may be configured to provide something compatible with the pre-Vista LPC implementation. 2. Some AV/protection software or the NT kernel has changed it on purpose so that getting to ALPC objects are more difficult. 3. Some driver is messing with it by accident. 4. Some rootkit-like thing is present and has hooked it.

The workaround I implemented was to create a temporary ALPC object of my own and get its type using the undocumented ObGetObjectType() API that was added in Windows 7.
You can find the actual code here: https://www.virtualbox.org/browser/vbox ... .cpp#L2136

Hi!

the previous build (#2) broke things for all avast users. Frightfully sorry about that. Here is a new build that fixes that blunder.

Test build #3: https://www.virtualbox.org/download/tes ... 01-Win.exe

@RobBrownNZ, @spider38: Please try the new build, it should fix the problem you were seeing with build #2.

@derscherjm, @Limeroli, @rnewman, @Gurvender.Bahia: Would be great if you could take the new build for a spin.

Cheers,
bird.

The disassembly at 0x18158 in VirtualBox.exe unfortunately makes no sense to me, I mean, we should not be executing anything at that address. So, the question is what caused us to get there.

I need at least the VBoxStartup.log for the crashing process in order to be able to help you (ideally I'd like a minidump of the crashing process of course).

Cheers,
bird.

Test build #3 installer won't run to completion, I get an error:

There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.

Could you please describe your problem? Because I cannot see anything obviously wrong in the log file, except that (1) you didn't try the latest test build, and (2) you won't have UniKey functionality available in the VM process. The problem with UniKey is that they don't ship signed binaries, and we just won't load anything that isn't signed in some verifiable way.

Hi bird

I agree with spider38. The earlier build 4.3.17.96087 installs and works fine for me (Win 7 x64 SP1, SEP 12.1.4112.4156)

BUT:

Test build 3, 4.3.17.96096, fails to install with the same message about a DLL not being able to be run (as spider's screenshot showed).

It looks to me like the installer for that build is broken in some way.

Mike

I used a Windows 7 SP1 32 bit virtual machine to install VBox 4.3.16 on. That VM has no anti-virus except the stock Windows Defender. Windows updates on it hadn't been done since 7/21/2014. I then created a small Windows XP VM inside that Windows 7 VM and it ran fine. I then did the Windows Updates on that Windows 7 VM and the XP VM still ran fine inside the Windows 7 VM. Hope this info helps.

Tom, could you please try the latest test build (#3).
