    description Several local and remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2005-3359 Franz Filz discovered that some socket calls permit causing inconsistent reference counts on loadable modules, which allows local users to cause a denial of service. - CVE-2006-0038 'Solar Designer' discovered that arithmetic computations in netfilter's do_replace() function can lead to a buffer overflow and the execution of arbitrary code. However, the operation requires CAP_NET_ADMIN privileges, which is only an issue in virtualization systems or fine grained access control systems. - CVE-2006-0039 'Solar Designer' discovered a race condition in netfilter's do_add_counters() function, which allows information disclosure of kernel memory by exploiting a race condition. Likewise, it requires CAP_NET_ADMIN privileges. - CVE-2006-0456 David Howells discovered that the s390 assembly version of the strnlen_user() function incorrectly returns some string size values. - CVE-2006-0554 It was discovered that the ftruncate() function of XFS can expose unallocated blocks, which allows information disclosure of previously deleted files. - CVE-2006-0555 It was discovered that some NFS file operations on handles mounted with O_DIRECT can force the kernel into a crash. - CVE-2006-0557 It was discovered that the code to configure memory policies allows tricking the kernel into a crash, thus allowing denial of service. - CVE-2006-0558 It was discovered by Cliff Wickman that perfmon for the IA64 architecture allows users to trigger a BUG() assert, which allows denial of service. - CVE-2006-0741 Intel EM64T systems were discovered to be susceptible to a local DoS due to an endless recursive fault related to a bad ELF entry address. - CVE-2006-0742 Alan and Gareth discovered that the ia64 platform had an incorrectly declared die_if_kernel() function as 'does never return' which could be exploited by a local attacker resulting in a kernel crash. - CVE-2006-0744 The Linux kernel did not properly handle uncanonical return addresses on Intel EM64T CPUs, reporting exceptions in the SYSRET instead of the next instruction, causing the kernel exception handler to run on the user stack with the wrong GS. This may result in a DoS due to a local user changing the frames. - CVE-2006-1056 AMD64 machines (and other 7th and 8th generation AuthenticAMD processors) were found to be vulnerable to sensitive information leakage, due to how they handle saving and restoring the FOP, FIP, and FDP x87 registers in FXSAVE/FXRSTOR when an exception is pending. This allows a process to determine portions of the state of floating point instructions of other processes. - CVE-2006-1242 Marco Ivaldi discovered that there was an unintended information disclosure allowing remote attackers to bypass protections against Idle Scans (nmap -sI) by abusing the ID field of IP packets and bypassing the zero IP ID in DF packet countermeasure. This was a result of the ip_push_pending_frames function improperly incremented the IP ID field when sending a RST after receiving unsolicited TCP SYN-ACK packets. - CVE-2006-1368 Shaun Tancheff discovered a buffer overflow (boundary condition error) in the USB Gadget RNDIS implementation allowing remote attackers to cause a DoS. While creating a reply message, the driver allocated memory for the reply data, but not for the reply structure. The kernel fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer. Attackers could crash the system, or possibly execute arbitrary machine code. - CVE-2006-1523 Oleg Nesterov reported an unsafe BUG_ON call in signal.c which was introduced by RCU signal handling. The BUG_ON code is protected by siglock while the code in switch_exit_pids() uses tasklist_lock. It may be possible for local users to exploit this to initiate a denial of service attack (DoS). - CVE-2006-1524 Hugh Dickins discovered an issue in the madvise_remove() function wherein file and mmap restrictions are not followed, allowing local users to bypass IPC permissions and replace portions of readonly tmpfs files with zeroes. - CVE-2006-1525 Alexandra Kossovsky reported a NULL pointer dereference condition in ip_route_input() that can be triggered by a local user by requesting a route for a multicast IP address, resulting in a denial of service (panic). - CVE-2006-1857 Vlad Yasevich reported a data validation issue in the SCTP subsystem that may allow a remote user to overflow a buffer using a badly formatted HB-ACK chunk, resulting in a denial of service. - CVE-2006-1858 Vlad Yasevich reported a bug in the bounds checking code in the SCTP subsystem that may allow a remote attacker to trigger a denial of service attack when rounded parameter lengths are used to calculate parameter lengths instead of the actual values. - CVE-2006-1863 Mark Mosely discovered that chroots residing on an CIFS share can be escaped with specially crafted 'cd' sequences. - CVE-2006-1864 Mark Mosely discovered that chroots residing on an SMB share can be escaped with specially crafted 'cd' sequences. - CVE-2006-2271 The 'Mu security team' discovered that carefully crafted ECNE chunks can cause a kernel crash by accessing incorrect state stable entries in the SCTP networking subsystem, which allows denial of service. - CVE-2006-2272 The 'Mu security team' discovered that fragmented SCTP control chunks can trigger kernel panics, which allows for denial of service attacks. - CVE-2006-2274 It was discovered that SCTP packets with two initial bundled data packets can lead to infinite recursion, which allows for denial of service attacks.

    title Debian DSA-1103-1 : kernel-source-2.6.8 - several vulnerabilities
  • NASL family Ubuntu Local Security Checks
    NASL id UBUNTU_USN-263-1.NASL
    description A flaw was found in the module reference counting for loadable protocol modules of netfilter. By performing particular socket operations, a local attacker could exploit this to crash the kernel. This flaw only affects Ubuntu 5.10. (CVE-2005-3359) David Howells noticed a race condition in the add_key(), request_key() and keyctl() functions. By modifying the length of string arguments after the kernel determined their length, but before the kernel copied them into kernel memory, a local attacker could either crash the kernel or read random parts of kernel memory (which could potentially contain sensitive data). (CVE-2006-0457) An information disclosure vulnerability was discovered in the ftruncate() function for the XFS file system. Under certain conditions, this function could expose random unallocated blocks. A local user could potentially exploit this to recover sensitive data from previously deleted files. (CVE-2006-0554) A local Denial of Service vulnerability was found in the NFS client module. By opening a file on an NFS share with O_DIRECT and performing some special operations on it, a local attacker could trigger a kernel crash. (CVE-2006-0555) The ELF binary loader did not sufficiently verify some addresses in the ELF headers. By attempting to execute a specially crafted program, a local attacker could exploit this to trigger a recursive loop of kernel errors, which finally ended in a kernel crash. This only affects the amd64 architecture on Intel processors (EMT64). (CVE-2006-0741) The die_if_kernel() function was incorrectly declared as 'does never return' on the ia64 platform. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the kernel. Please note that ia64 is not an officially supported platform. (CVE-2006-0742) Oleg Nesterov discovered a race condition in the signal handling. On multiprocessor (SMP) machines, a local attacker could exploit this to create many unkillable processes, which could eventually lead to a Denial of Service. A memory leak was discovered in the handling of files which were opened with the O_DIRECT flag. By repeatedly opening files in a special way, a local attacker could eventually drain all available kernel memory and render the machine unusable. This flaw only affects Ubuntu 4.10. (http://linux.bkbits.net:8080/linux-2.6/cset%404182a613oVsK0-8eCWpyYFr Uf8rhLA). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

  • NASL family Mandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL id MANDRAKE_MDKSA-2006-059.NASL
    description A number of vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : sysctl.c in the Linux kernel prior to 2.6.14.1 allows local users to cause a Denial of Service (kernel oops) and possibly execute code by opening an interface file in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/, waiting until the interface is unregistered, then obtaining and modifying function pointers in memory that was used for the ctl_table (CVE-2005-2709). Multiple vulnerabilities in versions prior to 2.6.13.2 allow local users to cause a DoS (oops from null dereference) via fput in a 32bit ioctl on 64-bit x86 systems or sockfd_put in the 32-bit routing_ioctl function on 64-bit systems (CVE-2005-3044). Note that this was previously partially corrected in MDKSA-2005:235. Prior to 2.6.14, the kernel's atm module allows local users to cause a DoS (panic) via certain socket calls that produce inconsistent reference counts for loadable protocol modules (CVE-2005-3359). A race condition in the (1) add_key, (2) request_key, and (3) keyctl functions in the 2.6.x kernel allows local users to cause a DoS (crash) or read sensitive kernel memory by modifying the length of a string argument between the time that the kernel calculates the length and when it copies the data into kernel memory (CVE-2006-0457). Prior to 2.6.15.5, the kernel allows local users to obtain sensitive information via a crafted XFS ftruncate call, which may return stale data (CVE-2006-0554). Prior to 2.6.15.5, the kernel allows local users to cause a DoS (NFS client panic) via unknown attack vectors related to the use of O_DIRECT (CVE-2006-0555). Prior to an including kernel 2.6.16, sys_mbind in mempolicy.c does not sanity check the maxnod variable before making certain computations, which has an unknown impact and attack vectors (CVE-2006-0557). Prior to 2.6.15.5, the kernel allows local users to cause a DoS ('endless recursive fault') via unknown attack vectors related to a 'bad elf entry address' on Intel processors (CVE-2006-0741). Prior to 2.6.15.6, the die_if_kernel function in the kernel can allow local users to cause a DoS by causing user faults on Itanium systems (CVE-2006-00742). A race in the signal-handling code which allows a process to become unkillable when the race is triggered was also fixed. In addition to these security fixes, other fixes have been included such as : - add ich8 support - libata locking rewrite - libata clear ATA_QCFLAG_ACTIVE flag before calling the completion callback - support the Acer Aspire 5xxx/3xxx series in the acerhk module - USB storage: remove info sysfs file as it violates the sysfs one value per file rule - fix OOPS in sysfs_hash_and_remove_file() - pl2303 USB driver fixes; makes pl2303HX chip work correctly - fix OOPS in IPMI driver which is probably caused when trying to use ACPI functions when ACPI was not properly initialized - fix de_thread() racy BUG_ON() The provided packages are patched to fix these vulnerabilities. All users are encouraged to upgrade to these updated kernels. To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at : http://www.mandriva.com/en/security/kernelupdate Please note that users using the LSI Logic 53c1030 dual-channel ultra 320 SCSI card will need to re-create their initrd images manually prior to rebooting in order to fix a bug that prevents booting. A future update will correct this problem. To do this, execute : # rm /boot/initrd-2.6.12-18mdk.img # mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.12-18mdk.img 2.6.12-18mdk --with-module=mptspi

These new kernel packages contain fixes for the security issues described below : * a flaw in the IPv6 implementation that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and crash) (CVE-2005-2973, important) * a flaw in the bridge implementation that allowed a remote user to cause forwarding of spoofed packets via poisoning of the forwarding table with already dropped frames (CVE-2005-3272, moderate) * a flaw in the atm module that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (panic) via certain socket calls (CVE-2005-3359, important) * a flaw in the NFS client implementation that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (panic) via O_DIRECT writes (CVE-2006-0555, important) * a difference in 'sysretq' operation of EM64T (as opposed to Opteron) processors that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (crash) upon return from certain system calls (CVE-2006-0741 and CVE-2006-0744, important) * a flaw in the keyring implementation that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (OOPS) (CVE-2006-1522, important) * a flaw in IP routing implementation that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (panic) via a request for a route for a multicast IP (CVE-2006-1525, important) * a flaw in the SCTP-netfilter implementation that allowed a remote user to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) (CVE-2006-1527, important) * a flaw in the sg driver that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (crash) via a dio transfer to memory mapped (mmap) IO space (CVE-2006-1528, important) * a flaw in the threading implementation that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (panic) (CVE-2006-1855, important) * two missing LSM hooks that allowed a local user to bypass the LSM by using readv() or writev() (CVE-2006-1856, moderate) * a flaw in the virtual memory implementation that allowed local user to cause a denial of service (panic) by using the lsof command (CVE-2006-1862, important) * a directory traversal vulnerability in smbfs that allowed a local user to escape chroot restrictions for an SMB-mounted filesystem via '..\\' sequences (CVE-2006-1864, moderate) * a flaw in the ECNE chunk handling of SCTP that allowed a remote user to cause a denial of service (panic) (CVE-2006-2271, moderate) * a flaw in the handling of COOKIE_ECHO and HEARTBEAT control chunks of SCTP that allowed a remote user to cause a denial of service (panic) (CVE-2006-2272, moderate) * a flaw in the handling of DATA fragments of SCTP that allowed a remote user to cause a denial of service (infinite recursion and crash) (CVE-2006-2274, moderate) All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 users are advised to upgrade their kernels to the packages associated with their machine architectures and configurations as listed in this erratum.
